With the growth of interest in the debates about what culture is,
and who 'owns' it, questions of cultural policy have moved to the
forefront of wider dicussions of citizenship. This book unpicks the
significance of culture for citizenship. Among the topics explored
are the strengths and weaknesses of the 'civilizing mission' of
museums; the moralism of 'Third Way' politics; the proper base for
funding culture and the arts; the impact of globalization on
culture and citizenship; the fantasies of freedom in Internet use;
the tensions between human rights advocacy and citizenship; and the
place of citizen ideals in governance. What emerges is a superb
resource for analyzing the meaning of cultural policy in
contemporary society. It both summarizes the state of the field and
innovates new ways of thinking about culture and citizenship.
