It will surely be with a sense of pride that scholars who have long worked in cultural economics receive a volume devoted to their field in the prestigious North-Holland series of Handbooks in Economics. This Handbook contains 36 chapters on different aspects of cultural economics, as well as a useful introductory essay by co-editor David Throsby, who, although he self-deprecatingly refers to his chapter as an indulgence, provides a valuable overview of the scope of the volume. The chapters are by the most distinguished cultural economists in their respective sub-fields, and are grouped into sections covering: History; Value; Legal Issues; Culture and the Economy; Consumption and Production; Cultural Industries; Labor Markets; Auctions and Prices; Heritage; Location; and Policy.
