The book is a major statement of the state of the art in the field of economy and space. It asks what difference does it make to think about the economy in geographical terms? The SAGE Handbook of Economic Geography illustrates the significance of thinking the ‘economy’ and the ‘economic’ geographically. It identifies significant stages in the discipline’s development, and focuses on the key themes and ideas that inform present thinking in economic geography. Andy’s chapter is in the section on Geographies of consumption and services: formal and informal spaces of consumption; the culture industries; performance, and it focuses upon the analysis of the cultural industries.
