    RAND Corporation 2008; US$ 9.95

    For more than 30 years, arts education has been a low priority in the nation?s public schools.

  • Entering Cultural Communitiesby Diane Grams; Betty Farrell

    Rutgers University Press 2008; US$ 21.00

    Arts organizations once sought patrons primarily from among the wealthy and well educated, but for many decades now they have revised their goals as they seek to broaden their audiences.

  • Musesby Julia Forster

    Pocket Essentials 2009; US$ 14.99

    Muses have fascinated for millennia yet seldom receive as much exposure as the artistic geniuses they inspire. Of any age, descent or gender, muses enchant simply by being themselves; this innate capacity to inspire has been commonplace for many years yet these catalysing forces are little understood. New science places much emphasis on the role... more...

  • Patronizing the Artsby Marjorie Garber

    Princeton University Press 2008; US$ 24.95

    What is the role of the arts in American culture? Is art an essential element? If so, how should we support it? Today, as in the past, artists need the funding, approval, and friendship of patrons whether they are individuals, corporations, governments, or nonprofit foundations. But as Patronizing the Arts shows, these relationships can be problematic,... more...

  • Legislating Creativityby Dustin Kidd

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

Legislating Creativity examines the relationship between art and politics through an analysis of controversial art projects tied to the National Endowment for the Arts during the Culture... more...

  • Driving Homeby Jonathan Raban

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 29.95

    For more than thirty years, Jonathan Raban has written with infectious fascination about people and places in transition or on the margins, about journeys undertaken and destinations never quite reached, and, as an Englishman transplanted in Seattle, about what it means to feel rooted in America. Spanning two decades, Driving Home charts a course... more...

  • Something to Sayby Richard Klin; Lily Prince

    Leapfrog Press 2011; US$ 14.95

  • Who Owns Antiquity?by James Cuno

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 18.95

    Whether antiquities should be returned to the countries where they were found is one of the most urgent and controversial issues in the art world today, and it has pitted museums, private collectors, and dealers against source countries, archaeologists, and academics. Maintaining that the acquisition of undocumented antiquities by museums encourages... more...

  • Creative Rebellion for the Twenty-First Centuryby Diana Boros

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 95.00

    Employing political philosophy to argue the need for social and public art projects to be a part of the everyday lives of Americans, Boros creates a new synthesis of philosophical ideas to support the political value of public art. more...
