Issues of cultural policy are of central importance now because forms of media are growing at an astonishing rate - new media like video games and chat rooms as well as modified older forms such as virtual access to museums, libraries and art galleries on the Internet. The digital revolution gives rise potentially to a culture of 'real virtuality' in which all the cultural artefacts of the world, past and present, may become instantly available at any time. The book will chart the decline and renewal of public cultural policy and a wide range of contemporary issues.
