    Abstract

    In this edited volume scholars coming from all over Europe discuss the extent to which high- and low-culture can contribute to the economic development of Europe's old industrial regions. Including case studies from areas in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Poland and Russia, the book demonstrates that culture can play a role in regenerating old industrial regions, but rather as an image booster than as a job machine.
