How digital technology is upending the traditional creative industries—and why that’s a good thing The digital revolution poses a mortal threat to the major creative industries—music, publishing, television, and the movies. Cheap, easy self-producing is eroding the position of the gatekeepers and guardians of culture. Does this revolution herald the collapse of culture, as some commentators claim? Far from it. In Digital Renaissance, Joel Waldfogel argues that digital technology is enabling a new golden age of popular culture—a digital renaissance. Analyzing decades of production and sales data, as well as bestseller and best-of lists, Waldfogel finds that the new digital model is just as powerful at generating high-quality, successful work as the old industry model, and in many cases more so.

Writing this book has given me the privilege to know more about youth crime, than I ever knew. As a youth myself, i pains me to see other teenagers and youth dying primarily in the hands of their fellow youths. And it makes me feel so sick. So one of the reasons for writing this book is to reach out to the youths out there so that they can change for the better. This book is written to show the youths that taking people's lives is something that is evil and shouldn't be allowed to continue.
