“The contributors to this unabashed book of tendency bring to bear the progressive critical energies of cultural studies and political economy to the study and management of cultural provision in the arts, broadcasting, television, popular music, the Internet, and often neglected areas like sport and urban planning. The entry of progressives into the policy sphere aims at effective reform of state and market institutions in the direction of cultural rights and citizenship and greater parity for developing countries in international spheres of trade-in-culture. The goal is a more democratic cultural policy.” George Yúdice, New York University
