In Art for the nation, Brandon Taylor gives us a fascinating glimpse at the development of museums as institutions. He provides an absorbing account of the growth of public culture as he analyzes the politics, geography, and social life of metropolitan and visual culture. He also provides an eye-opening social history of the relationship between the classes and the entree of many Jewish patrons into a world from which they might otherwise have been excluded. At a time when museums are constantly in the news-as one of the fastest growing businesses in both England and the United States, as tourist attractions and gift shops, as malls of art, and as educational centers-this book is indispensable reading.
