"Sociology of the Arts" is a comprehensive overview of the sociology of art and an authoritative work of scholarships by a leading expert in the field. The book synthesizes the various theoretical models of art sociology, and provides empirical examples as well as simulating exemplars of sociological work on the arts. Case studies of art works are from both ends of the cultural spectrum: fine arts (theatre, dance, symphony, opera) and popular arts (Hollywood movies, pop music, pulp fiction, TV drama and comedy, advertising). These studies, combined with the book's considerable theoretical breadth and insight, explore how art is created, distributed, received, consumed, and used by people who experience it. The book also discusses the newly emerging question of the art object itself, and the meaning of art works.
