French Cultural Policy Debates: A Reader

01 December 2001, France

Through the writings of policy-makers and analysts such as André Malraux, Jack Lang and Pierre Bourdieu Catherine Trautman, French Cultural Policy Debates traces the emergence of a distinctive model of cultural action and shows how the events of 1968 challenged this perspective with broader understandings of cultural development. The texts address a span of domains, ranging from theatre, painting, opera and film to popular music and community arts and shape a more fundamental debate concerning the relations between culture, democracy, the economy, technology and the State.
