From the Inside Flap
"You don't have to agree with all his conclusions to recognize that Bill Ivey's Arts, Inc. is an important book. It's a must-read for all those interested in American art and culture and the public interest in preserving access to our heritage for everyone, and as it contributes to the arts of today and tomorrow."--Frank Hodsoll
"Arts, Inc. is the first comprehensive effort to explore the role and potential of a coordinated vision for art, culture, and expression in American public life. Through strands of personal and professional memoir, policy analysis, for-profit and nonprofit industry insights, and personal conviction, Bill Ivey defines a new canvas for more productive and inclusive conversations on the expressive life of our nation and its citizens."--Andrew Taylor, Bolz Center for Arts Administration, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"Very few observers of the contemporary U.S. and global arts worlds have Bill Ivey's capacity for first-hand examples of how trade representatives, artists, music executives, corporate attorneys, elected officials, non-profit executives and many other participants influence the course of the arts, and in particular, the public's access to the arts. Arts, Inc. is an important work because it asserts, in a very thoughtful and urgent manner, that Americans have a right to a better expressive life."--John Kreidler, retired Executive Director, Cultural Initiatives Silicon Valley
"At a time when international polls show doubts about America, our art and culture are a crucial resource for our soft power. Bill Ivey does a wonderful job of explaining the importance of art as a public issue. "--Joseph S. Nye, Jr., author of Soft Power: The Means to Success in World Politics
"A profoundly important diagnosis by perhaps America's best-qualified critic of the harm to our culture caused by overregulation and inadequate support. Ivey has given us a rich and beautifully written warning about the culture we're losing, and a powerful and historically compelling image of a culture that could be."--Lawrence Lessig, Stanford Law School
"Walt Whitman was democracy's eloquent poet who understood that democracy is not just a form of government but a way of life rooted in culture. Bill Ivey is culture's eloquent advocate who knows that as democracy needs the arts, the arts need the advocacy of government. His manifesto Arts, Inc. is a passionate attack on the commercialization of culture and a plea for a cultural bill of rights that will restore to all Americans their right to a heritage, to creative expression and to a creative life. This is not just a vital book about the arts, but a vital book about democracy." --Benjamin R. Barber, author of Jihad vs. McWorld and Consumed.
