Culture and Consensus: England, Art and Politics since 1940 - Routledge Revivals (Hardback)Robert Hewison (author)
- We can order this
Culture and Consensus, first published in 1995 and a revised edition in 1997, explores the history of the relationship between politics and the arts in Britain since 1940, and shows how the search for a secure sense of English identity has been reflected in official and unofficial attitudes to the arts, architecture, landscape and other emblems of national significance.
Illustrating his argument with a series of detailed case histories, Robert Hewison analyses how Britain's cultural life has reached its present enfeebled condition and suggests a way forward. This book will be of interest to students of art and cultural studies.
