'A fearsome satirical blast’ Sunday Age Sydney, 2001: Hugh Walker has it all. He’s a successful young lawyer with a beautiful girlfriend and a million dollar office view… So why does he identify more with his resident cockroach than Atticus Finch, his childhood hero? Once upon a time he was the defender of the abused, the voice of the oppressed. But now he's turning a blind eye to suspect time sheets, championing the powerful against the powerless, and not being entirely honest with his girlfriend. Has his good side deserted him? Is there a way back? A bitingly satirical novel about one man’s search for his soul … in the most soulless of places. Praise for Hell Has Harbour Views ‘A sharp-clawed comedy’ Sydney Morning Herald ‘The funniest, most unutterably savage lawyer joke ever’ John Birmingham ‘Beasley exercises brutal wit in deconstructing modern angst … His spirited whistleblowing is a tonic’ Weekend Australian

Comparing the major Pacific Rim cities of Sydney, Hong Kong and Shanghai, this book examines world city branding. Whilst all three cities compete on the world's stage for events, tourists and investment, they are also at the centre of distinct film traditions and their identities are thus strongly connected with a cinematic impression. Using an interdisciplinary approach, this book not only analyses the city branding of these cities from the more widely researched perspectives of tourism, marketing and regional development, but also draws in cultural studies and psychology approaches which offer fresh and useful insights to place branding and marketing in general. The authors compare and contrast qualitative and quantitative original data as well as critically analyzing current texts and debates on city branding. In conclusion, they argue that city branding should contribute not only to regional development and identity, but also to sustainable economic well-being and public happiness.
