'This publication, while in many ways as critical of some museum developments as Hewison's book [Heritage Industry], is by far the more informed and better argued.' - Scottish Museum News

About the Series
The Comedia series features new theoretical and empirical work exploring the dynamics of the arts and culture industries, and addressing critical issues in the field of contemporary popular culture: issues of production, design, marketing, and consumption. While the principle focus is contemporary, the series also offers historical, educational, and policy-oriented perspectives across a broad range of media and cultural forms, from the news media to the visual arts.
