New Georgetown University Press Publications

Two monographs and an edited collection on creative industries, cultural policies and UNESCO, all by J. P. Singh, have recently been published by the Georgetown University Press.

Globalized Arts: The Entertainment Economy and Cultural Identity (Columbia, 2011) by J. P. Singh focuses on the confrontation between global politics and symbolic creative expression, to describe how, by integrating themselves into international markets, entertainment industries give rise to far-reaching cultural anxieties and politics. The book's endorsements come from Arjun Appadurai, Françoise Benhamou, Tyler Cowen, and David Throsby.

UNESCO: Creating Norms for a Complex World (Routledge, 2011) by J. P. Singh traces the history of UNESCO from its foundational idealism to its current stature as the preeminent international organization for science, education, and culture.

A book International Cultural Policies and Power (Palgrave Macmillan, 2010), edited by J. P. Singh, brings together 17 essays from a global group of social scientists to provide multiple conceptual, comparative, and international perspectives.
