From the Publisher"All of these essays are as entertaining as they are thoughtful. With its roots in popular sentiment, democracy will forever be entwined with art, a force that powerfully molds popular taste. Democracy and the Arts speaks elegantly to that relationship and reminds readers of its enduring importance. Democracy and the Arts is an outstanding contribution to popular culture studies and curriculum supplemental reading lists."—The Midwest Book Review
"An intriguing collection of essays. . . . Distinguished contributors. . . . The editors have taken great pains to select essays from a cross section of writers, traditions, and disciplines. . . . This should be of interest to scholars, academics, and institutions and individuals involved in artistic pursuits."—Library Journal
"This volume. . . makes a major contribution to the much debated issue of the status of the arts in democratic America today."—Virginia Quarterly Review
"A fine mix of challenging reflections and opinions. . . This group of arguments and insights is valuable."—Choice
"Democracy and the Arts is an informative book, both entertaining and thoughtful. If art, literature, and music do in fact mirror society at any given moment in time, Democracy and the Arts provides a forum to examine the interplay of democracy and the arts, a force the contributors feel still molds popular taste."—James Adomanis. History of Education Quarterly. Summer, 2000.
