`This is an accessibly written and compellingly argued book, not shy of its clear polemical and political intentions. It is an ambitious project, extensively researched and wide-ranging in its coverage. With its effective blend of political economy and cultural studies, detailed analysis of specific institutions and practices, and exploration of the contradictory positions of the citizen and the consumer, it is likely to be read widely - and fiercely argued with - by cultural policy professionals and others involved in the field' - Roger Bromley, Professor of International Cultural Studies, Nottingham Trent University
This is one of few text that synthesizes U. S. cultural policy history in a way that is easily accessible for students. My only wish is that the authors will do a second edition and add cases to support critical aspects of cultural policy.
