Democracy and the Arts: The Role of Participation


This definitive text explores the complex relationship between participation in the arts and participation in politics in America. It traces the American perspective on the arts through the evolution of democratic theory and the historical link with participation in the arts. How the arts affect a political system is explored, along with the question of whether a political system can be beneficial or detrimental to the arts. This study provides a model for the creation of an American society in which the artistic community reinforces the skills of participation for a maximum number of citizens.
