Cultural Industries in Britain and Germany. Sport, Music and Entertainment from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Century


 

 
The essays in this volume deal with entertainment offered by theatre and concert organisers, record and film companies and sports organisations as commercial activities. Over time traditionally dominant suppliers such as courts, churches, the nobility, political parties and urban authorities lost their influence and had to content themselves with exerting only a marginal influence on what was on offer in the field of culture. Today, professional bodies and other suppliers of such events work in close co-operation with the media, advertising and the consumer-goods industries; they serve a growing proportion of the demand for cultural events, which they, in turn, actively seek to increase. The authors focus on Britain from the eighteenth to the twentieth century. They draw comparisons with Germany, because this would open up the possibility of defamiliarisation – and thus control – of the British case.
