Featured Book: Event Policy

Event Policy: From Theory to Strategy by David McGillivray, Gayle McPherson, and Malcolm Foley (all at the University of the West of Scotland) is a groundbreaking volume; it is essential reading for students, researchers and academics of events and other related disciplines.

This is the first text to embrace events policy as a distinct field of study and fill the need for more advanced texts in events management. Its main aim is to locate the phenomena of events (and festivity) within a theoretical and strategic framework and in doing so demonstrate the links between the development of events in policy–making and the theoretical exploration of the role of events as policy.
