Rethinking Cultural Policy

Front Cover
McGraw-Hill Education (UK), Mar 1, 2004 - Social Science - 186 pages
This book addresses issues concerning culture, economy and power in the age of new-liberal globalization. It examines how public cultural policies have been rationalized in the past and how they are being rethought. Arguing that the study of culture and policy should not be confined to prevailing governmental agendas, the book offers a distinctive and independent analysis of cultural policy.
