'At last, a book courageously equating arts institutional success with vibrant and visionary leadership, and rejecting the frequent rationalizations for failure on an uncontrollable external environment.'
Thomas W. Morris, Artistic Director Ojai Music Festival, former Chief Executive The Cleveland Orchestra and Boston Symphony

'Focused on real-life examples, this book applies a critical lens to the practices of arts management. Readers will not only learn what approaches were taken and why, but are given the space to question what viewpoints, ideologies and traditions have shaped the decisions that were made.'
Dr Victoria Durrer, Lecturer in Arts Management and Cultural Policy, Queen's University, Belfast
