Book review: Creative industries and digital transformation in China

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Creative industries have been mushrooming in the past few decades and gradually emerged as one of the most potent industries in China. In the book Creative Industries and Digital Transformation in China, various scholars approached it from diverse perspectives, including reviving the traditional culture, cyberspace in Shanghai, gaming culture, and the fashion eco-system. It reveals the gradually emerging creative industries from historical, modern, and cultural points of view. In general, it is a comprehensive book that incorporates the essential points from the growing process of the contemporary creative industry and embedded the digital transformation process based on the root of Chinese culture. However, there are weaknesses that exist in this book; it majorly lies in the lack of understanding of the political situation and lack of sufficient empirical examples of other major industries to investigate the general understanding of creative industries in China.
