About this book

This edited collection develops the first integrated, critical-historical examination of the terms, narratives and assumptions constructing present day notions of participation and value, and the relations between them. The book proposes a radical re-evaluation of this relationship organized in three inter-related sections on Political discourses of participation and value; Culture and governance; and Community, participation and cultural policy.
