Art Worlds
by Howard S. Becker
Publisher's Description
"An unusual and excellent book. . . .Becker discusses everything from aesthetics, criticism, censorship, artistic mavericks, professionalism--to authenticity, conformity, commercial distribution, and changes in art. Anything and everything, in other words, that can help illuminate his belief that works of art are produced by cooperation and require a multifaceted network of cooperating individuals and activities to see the light of day. It's a fascinating book--and a thought provoking one."--Christian Science Monitor.
