Editorial Reviews


“This is a deeply serious enquiry into community responsibility and democratic possibility, thought-provoking, morally alert and socially engaged.”
(Times Higher Education)

“Steven Tepper’s Not Here, Not Now, Not That! offers invaluable insights into how social change and uncertainty drive protests over art. With fresh data and perspectives, Tepper makes a compelling case that cultural conflicts are largely homegrown, tied to each community’s shifting demographics and values. It’s an eye-opening work.”

(Ken Paulson, president of the First Amendment Center)

“Tepper draws a crucial link between controversy about art and the other social conflicts that consume Americans. Treating the controversies sensitively and critically, the book demonstrates clearly that meanings, ideas, symbols, and art are an important arena for contests over community and morality. It illuminates the culture wars by showing the roots and stakes of culture conflicts.”

(Andrew Perrin, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)

“There has been a great deal written over the last several decades about the so-called culture wars and related issues of art, arts policy, and artistic censorship. Tepper’s book, by deploying the analytical and empirical tools of modern sociology and avoiding the advocacy and name-calling so characteristic of these controversies, has provided new insights and new data on a topic about which it had seemed there was nothing more to be said. The book is an important and much-needed addition to the literature on arts policy.”

(Frederick Schauer, University of Virginia)

Not Here, Not Now, Not That! is an impressive achievement. Its rich analysis of data from media sources and surveys is by far the best evidence anywhere about the nature and extent of cultural conflicts involving the arts. The extensive city-by-city comparisons contribute importantly to our understanding of local variations and the effects of local conditions on these conflicts. I highly recommend this valuable and engaging book.”

(Robert Wuthnow, Princeton University)
