Example text

Most countries in the world are not contemplating reversions to socialism. The arguments of this book, taken alone, cannot determine which side is correct in the American political debates over government funding of the arts. Rather, I wish to challenge the common premise of cultural pessimism behind both sides. Funding critics argue that the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is corrupting American culture, while funding advocates claim that eliminating the NEA would critically damage American culture.

The influence of the television market also has had some consequences for other cultural media, such as motion pictures.

Moviemakers, to some degree, have shifted their attention away from more specialized moviegoers to the more general television audience.

Renaissance sculpture communicated the idea of depth perspective to painters, jazz crept into the rhythms of classical music, and movies have sped up the pacing of the best-selling novel.
