In this introductory chapter, we contextualize and briefly describe the intellectual contributions of the different chapters in this book. Following this chapter, which comprises Part I of this book, there are 11 chapters and each of these chapters addresses a particular research question or a set of questions about the creative class. Part II of this book consists of two chapters and this part focuses on alternate conceptual approaches to the creative class. Part III also contains two chapters and this part concentrates on analytics. Part IV consists of five chapters and this part sheds light on a variety of regional perspectives on the creative class. Finally, the two chapters that make up Part V take a retrospective and a prospective look at research on the creative class. In the concluding section of this chapter, we offer some reflections on the cornerstones of creative class theory as advocated by Richard Florida two decades ago.
