Editorial Reviews

"This is a valuable and wide-ranging volume which will be of great interest to practitioners and scholars of place branding alike." –Nicholas J. Cull, Professor of Public Diplomacy, University of Southern California. "In order to advance the field of place branding, a much stronger multidisciplinary approach is required than has occurred to date. The intellectual bridging between different fields provided by this book represents an important step in embracing that multidisciplinary perspective." –Keith Dinnie, Associate Professor of Business, Temple University Japan"This book has captured the heart of the theoretical and practical aspects of place branding as a strategic component of business today. Go and Govers have managed to succinctly present the various facets of this topic in a cohesive, logical and comprehensive manner. They have brought together key scholars and thinkers in the field and produced the most up-to-date scenario of the state of research and practice." –TC Melewar, Professor of Marketing and Strategy, Zurich University of Applied Sciences
