This is the first book to cover not only the economics of the fine arts and performing arts, but also public policy toward the arts at federal, state, and local levels in the United States. The second edition offers greater coverage of the international arts sector. The work will interest academic readers as a supplementary text on the sociology of the arts, as well as general readers seeking a systematic analysis of the economics of the arts. Theoretical concepts are developed from scratch so that readers with no background in economics can follow the argument.

Review:

"The economics of arts and culture are really not arcane, but arts policy-makers, arts managers and friends of the arts, as well as students and teachers, have needed an accessible guide to the subject, oriented to American conditions, for years. In the Heilbrun and Gray book we have a superb guide, comprehensible to the novice, useful to the initiated, comprehensive in coverage, up-to-date, and beautifully written." Dick Netzer, New York University

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. The 2001 second edition of this survey of the economics of - and public policy towards - the fine arts and performing arts covers arts at federal, state, and local levels in the United States as well as the international arts sector. The work will interest academic readers in the field and scholars of the sociology of the arts, as well as general readers seeking a systematic analysis of the arts. Theoretical concepts are developed from scratch so that readers with no background in economics can follow the argument. The authors look at the arts' historical growth and then examine consumption and production of the live performing arts and the fine arts, the functioning of arts markets, the financial problems of performing arts companies and museums, and the key role of public policy. A final chapter speculates about the future of art and culture in the United States. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521637121
