The book examines a wide range of issues in cultural policy and blends a close reading of key theories with case studies. It succeeds in illuminating a new line of enquiry into several exciting topics at the heart of current debates.

In the course of elaborating a critically reflexive approach, McGuigan challenges the prevailing instrumental imperatives of much cultural policymaking, where policies are formulated and enacted for economic and social purposes that are not specifically cultural. In a sense, McGuigan argues, cultural policy is being asked to do too much. Rethinking Cultural Policy invites a thorough reconsideration of pressing concerns that goes beyond a narrowly instrumental and reductive treatment of cultural policy.

It addresses a set of critical issues that include the relations between brand culture and global exploitation, the use of cultural policies in the interests of national aggrandisement and corporate business, and the impact of neo-liberalism on poor countries with regard to developmental tourism.

Cultural policy

History[ edit ] Prior to the twentieth century, the arts were typically supported by the patronage of the church, aristocrats such as kings and queens, and wealthy merchants. During the nineteenth century, artists increased their use of the private marketplace to earn revenue. For example, the composer Beethoven put on public concerts in the 19th century for which admission was charged. During the twentieth century, governments began to take over some of the arts patronage roles. Over the twentieth century, governments established a range of other institutions, such as arts councils and departments of culture. The first departments of culture typically supported the major arts that are part of the Western canon , such as painting and sculpture, and the major performing arts Classical music and theatre. As a result, most opera companies in the 21st century require government funding to operate.
