Editorial Reviews

Review

David Smith's deft and penetrating study of the National Endowment for the Arts places the turbulent history of that agency in the larger context of precisely these fundamental questions. In the process, he helps us to think more clearly about an even more fundamental and contested question: the place of art in modern American life. (Wilfred M. McClay, University of Oklahoma)

David A. Smith has written a thoughtful, informed, and non-partisan history of one of the most tortuous areas of American cultural life: the proper place of government support of the arts. An excellent and clarifying contribution to an issue that generally receives more obfuscation than insight. (Roger Kimball, author of Counterpoints)

A readable, straightforward account. (CHOICE)

Review

"An excellent and clarifying contribution to an issue that generally receives more obfuscation than insight."

"The NEA['s] ... history ... has been marvelously told in David Smith's new book."

This was required reading on my doctoral program in Public Administration. Not my favorite but still a good book on funding the arts.
