For decades Murray Edelman was one of the scholars to question dominant rational-choice interpretations of politics. He looked instead to the powerful influence of signs, spectacles and symbols on political behaviour and political institutions. This text examines paths of inquiry in political science, communication studies and sociology that are still being explored in the late 20th century. Edelman continues his quest to understand the influence of perception on the political process by turning to the role of art. He argues that political ideas, language and actions cannot help but be based upon the images and narratives taken from literature, paintings, film, television and other genres. Edelman believes art provides models, scenarios, narratives and images drawn upon in order to make sense of political events. He explores the different ways art can shape political perceptions and actions to both promote and inhibit diversity and democracy.
