"The arts have always mirrored economic and political reality, so it's no surprise that the global recession has strained the financial resources of established and emerging nations alike and has bitten deeply into cultural budgets. In this collection of essays, the first book to address the economics of the arts since the downturn in funding, an international group of experts examines the current needs of the arts as well as the questions - political, financial, ethical, and aesthetic - that go hand-in-hand with the problem of money. The book grows out of a 1993 session of the Salzburg Seminar." "Contributors assess the contemporary economic challenge of cultural policy from the perspective of giving as well as receiving support. They raise a wealth of new ideas on funding, planning, censorship, evaluative criteria for grants, educational tourism, and the role of the community from the grassroots to global levels."--Jacket
The plan for perpetual peace, On the government of Poland, and other writings on history and politics by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These abridgements of The Plan for Perpetual Peace (published 1761), On the Government of Poland (1771-1772), and Jean-Jacques Rousseau's other writings on history and politics represent his considerations of the practical applications of key principles developed in his best-known theoretical writings. In this latest volume in the classic series, Rousseau reflects on projects for a European union; the possibilities for governmental reform for France, including the polysynody experiment; international relations; and the establishment of governments for Poland and Corsica, both recently liberated from foreign oppression. Taken together, these works offer definitive insights into Rousseau's decidedly nonutopian thoughts on cosmopolitanism and nationalism, and on the theory and practice of politics."--Jacket
Autobiographical, scientific, religious, moral, and literary writings by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Newcomers to Rousseau's works and those who are familiar with his writings will find something to surprise them both in this wide variety of short pieces from every period of his life. Among the important theoretical writings found here are the "Fiction or Allegorical Fragment on Revelation" and the "Moral Letters," which are among Rousseau's clearest statements about the nature and limits of philosophic reasoning. In the early "Idea of a Method for the Composition of a Book," Rousseau lays out in advance his understanding of how to present his ideas to the public. He ponders the possibilities for and consequences of air travel in "The New Daedalus." This volume also contains both his first and last autobiographical statements. Some of these writings show Rousseau's lesser-known playful side. A comic fairy tale, "Queen Whimsical", explores the consequences--both serious and ridiculous--for a kingdom when the male heir to the throne, endowed with the frivolous characteristics of his mother, has a sister with all the characteristics of a good monarch. When Rousseau was asked whether a fifty-year old man could write love letters to a young woman without appearing ridiculous, he responded with "Letters to Sophie," which attempt to demonstrate that such a man could write as many as four--but not as many as six--letters before he became a laughingstock. In "The Banterer," he challenges readers to guess whether the work they are reading was written by an author who is "wisely mad" or by one who is "madly wise." When Rousseau was challenged to write a merry tale, "without intrigue, without love, without marriage, and without lewdness," he produced a work considered too daring to be published in France."--Publisher's website
