Arresting Images: Impolitic Art and Uncivil Actions
by Steven C. Dubin
Publisher's Description
In this "topical, informed, thought-provoking" text, sociology professor Steven Dubin "takes society's moral pulse, assessing the charges of immorality, irreverence and subversion which have been directed against so many recent creative expressions. . . . Drawing upon extensive interviews, a broad sampling of media, legal documents, and his own observations of important events, Dubin surveys visual art, photography, and film, as well as . . . video and performance art . . . [combining] the eye of someone familiar with art with the rigor of a social scientist who has insights about contemporary society and politics."--the publisher.
