"What does culture have to do with policy? Debates over offensive art and government funding represent only a small part of our cultural landscape. We need to think about culture differently and bring new contexts to changing realities. What challenges will American cultural life face in the future? How will new communications technologies and global transformations affect the way we perceive culture? Can cultural institutions survive a loss of support and reach new audiences? How might the arts and culture activate neighborhoods and cities?" "The Politics of Culture brings together important recent thinking in this emerging field. Featuring fresh research and thought-provoking commentary, these selections provide a compelling outline for the future of American cultural policy."--BOOK JACKET
