About this title

Synopsis:

This book gnaws at the fundamentals of accepted prejudice that art is a purely aesthetic experience of the intellect in its creator as much as its recipient. And that politics fall squarely in the opposite side of the fence: struggle, force, ambition - the 'perpetual and restless desire of power after power' identified by Thomas Hobbes in 1651. ♦ ToC: Foreword · Acknowledgements · 1.
