              This book unpacks central business operation mechanisms driving the economic development of a Queensland creative industry. The mapping of the booming Queensland music sector, its development and dynamics is examined in cluster and network terms within creative industries literat...ure and practice. The findings enable policy and management practitioners to facilitate and harness, in a more methodical manner, the growth potential of a local creative industry in terms of regional, national and global market places. The outcomes crucially inform industry operation trends, themes and policy enhance--ments to advance new economy growth drivers. The conclusions are central to the economic development agendas of world agencies like the United Nations (UNCTAD, UNIDO, UNDP, UNESCO, WIPO ILO, World Bank, International Trade Centre) and the Asian Development Bank, as well as Federal and State Governments. The work is invaluable to policy makers, practitioners and academics seeking evidence-based findings across a range of areas, including: industry development, trade and economy improvement, innovation management, intellectual property commercialisation and the creative industries.

              John Wesley and Karl Marx, unmistakably, are the two most influential characters of all modern history. So argues J. Wesley Bready in this classic statement on the social significance of the original evangelical movement in Great Britain. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centurie...s, at least, evangelical religion-as found in the life and teaching of John Wesley-had profound consequences that were anything but an opiate of the people (contra the teachings of Karl Marx). Instead, vital religion proved itself to be powerfully transformative, not only in the personal lives of its converts, but also in the deepest fibre of their social and political lives. J. Wesley Bready's careful documentation of the profound social and political influence of John Wesley's preaching and teaching will, for many readers today, prove to be a convincing demonstration of the transformative power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The power and scope of this evangelical Christian influence was extraordinary: from education to health care; from the needs of the poor and orphans, to prison reform and the founding of democratic institutions; from the promotion of good reading to an end to cruelty to animals (and founding of the RSPCA). All of these, and more, are the hallmarks and outward manifestations of a vital Christian faith. Nothing could illustrate more convincingly that faith without works is dead and, contrary to Marx, that the gospel of Jesus Christ more typically serves as a sharp awakening rather than an opiate of the people. Rev. Dr. J. Wesley Bready (1887-1953) was a Canadian-born scholar and author of numerous books, including Wesley and Democracy (1939), Lord Shaftesbury (1900), This Freedom-Whence? (1942), and Faith and Freedom: The Roots of Democracy (1946). He held degrees from Queen's University, University of Toronto, Columbia University, and University of London.
