Review:

"Cultural Appropriation and the Arts, by James O. Young, provides an analytical, comprehensive overview of ethical andaesthetic issues concerning cultural appropriation." (Journal of Cult Economy, 25 March 2011)

"Young tackles an ambitious subject in this book. Culture, appropriation, and art, the keywords in the book's title, are allnotoriously difficult to define. Young does not dedicate his bookto defining these terms. Instead he clarifies family resemblancesof these concepts, which he uses to make a case against culturalappropriation generally and the incorporation of culturalappropriation in the arts specifically. Recommended."(Choice, November 2008)

"The chief virtue of the book, [is] the conceptualclarifications Young brings to this diffuse topic, in particularthe basic distinctions among types of appropriation."(Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)

"This book could only have come about through many years oftravel and scholarly investigation. It is a valuable introductionfor those not familiar with the literature on this interestingsubject. Cultural Appropriation and the Arts will become thestandard work in this field for many years to come, andundergraduates could gain every bit as much from its interestingexamples and clear arguments as graduate students and professionalscan." (Phil Jenkins, Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, vol. 67, no.)

Synopsis:

Cultural appropriation is a pervasive feature of the contemporary world. The Parthenon Marbles remain in London. Works of art from indigenous cultures are held by many metropolitan museums. White musicians from Bix Beiderbeck to Eric Clapton have appropriated musical styles from African-American culture. From North America to Australasia, artists have appropriated motifs and stories from aboriginal cultures. Novelists and filmmakers from one culture have taken as their subject matter the lives and practices of members of other cultures. The practice of cultural appropriation has given rise to important ethical and aesthetic questions: Can cultural appropriation result in the production of aesthetically successful works of art? Is cultural appropriation in the arts morally objectionable?These questions have been widely debated by anthropologists, archaeologists, lawyers, art historians, advocates of the rights of indigenous peoples, literary critics, museum curators and others. At root, however, these questions are philosophical questions.

Now, for the first time, a philosopher undertakes a systematic investigation of the moral and aesthetic issues to which cultural appropriation gives rise.
