Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Critical Cultural Policy Studies is a trailblazingcollection of first-rate essays by the leading figures in mediastudies in North America, Britain, and Australia. As we enter theso-called Information Age, cultural policy is becoming a centralpolitical and social concern. These essays, splendidly edited byJustin Lewis and Toby Miller, will be required reading for all whonegotiate with these issues.” Robert W. McChesney,University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

“The contributors to this unabashed book of tendency bringto bear the progressive critical energies of cultural studies andpolitical economy to the study and management of cultural provisionin the arts, broadcasting, television, popular music, the Internet,and often neglected areas like sport and urban planning. The entryof progressives into the policy sphere aims at effective reform ofstate and market institutions in the direction of cultural rightsand citizenship and greater parity for developing countries ininternational spheres of trade-in-culture. The goal is a moredemocratic cultural policy.” George Yúdice, New YorkUniversity
