Reviews

'This book will be widely welcomed for the insights it provides on the state of cultural policy in five East Asian states: Singapore, China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan...Indeed what is most impressive is the way in which each chapter captures an essence of a nation's individual socio-economic and cultural history or contemporary context. Yet at the same time themes emerge which resonate across these diverse sites.' - Asia Pacific Journal of Arts and Cultural Management, 2014
