"To explain the logic of these arrangements, the author draws on the analytical resources of industrial economics and the theory of contracts. He addresses the winner-take-all character of many creative activities that brings wealth and renown to some artists while dooming others to frustration; why the "option" form of contract is so prevalent; and why even savvy producers get sucked into making "ten-ton turkeys," such as Heaven's Gate."--BOOK JACKET.

For years the research on creativity has been divided into person, process, product and press (environment) foci. However, the field is now much more extensive and diverse than it was when this scheme was proposed, and these four categories no longer catpure its essence. ""The Creativity Research Handbook"" shows how extensive and diverse the field has become. ""The Handbook"" contains extensive reviews and is intended to provide a comprehensive review of creativity research, first by the breadth of coverage of the chapters and second, by the depth and coverage within each chapter. ""The Handbook"" is divided into two parts, the first disciplinary and the second topical. The approach is a comprehensive one - authors do not focus on their own models or theories but instead give complete overviews. The disciplinary structure allows a more sensitive and accurate placement of research. The disciplinary framework also facilitates exchanges with the wider scholarly community - research on creative thinking, for example, shares assumptions with the cognitive sciences, and the disciplinary assignment can help individuals studying creativity to benefit from those sciences. Several of the contributions demonstrate how creativity research has benefited from such disciplinary connections. Part 2 contains six topical chapters; each of them focuses on one critical topic.
