Arts Under Pressure analyzes the relevant forces behind decision-making in cultural matters worldwide, specifically in the field of the arts, under the influence of economic globalization. The book deals with all the arts, in all parts of the world, focusing on the cycle of creation, production, distribution, promotion, reception, and influence. It asks the key questions: who has the power to decide what reaches audiences in what quantities, with what contents, and surrounded by what kinds of ambiences? The author claims that mass culture does not exist; what exists are artistic creations that are produced, distributed and promoted on a mass scale.

Review:

'This book is urgently needed. As a result of the processes of globalisation basic cultural rights are seriously endangered. Joost Smiers analyzes this threat in a lucid and competent manner.' Cees J. Hamelink, Universiteit van Amsterdam and Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam 'Urbane in perspective, and comprehensive in its documentation of the new manifestations of copyright in the age of globalization.' Rustom Bharucha, theatre director, Calcutta, and author of The Politics of Cultural Practice 'Arts under Pressure is an impressive book with massive information. It ought to become the No Logo of cultural research.' Ole Reitov, Director, Arts and Cultural Support, Danish Centre for Culture and Development (DCCD) 'Arts Under Pressure would be a good addition to any collection that is in need of a fresh opinion of the global economy or artistic expression.' Paula Persoleo, Pittsburg State University
