Editorial Reviews

"The great achievement of this collection is to bring together academics and cultural workers who can write eloquently about the vitally important but shamefully neglected topic of cultural work. The results are always interesting, often enlightening and sometimes brilliant."
-David Hesmondhalgh, The Open University
