""Culture and Community Law"" provides a legal analysis of the impact of Community Law on various cultural matters inclusive of policy instruments used by the Member States. The Member States can not realistically conduct a policy for the furtherance of various cultural objectives without a proper understanding of the limits imposed on them by Community law. ""Culture and Community Law, Before and After Maastricht"" identifies these limits.;The central theme of this book is that certain policy areas, now including culture and education, have been gradually extracted from the ""white zone"" into the ""grey zone"" and have become migrator to the ""black zone"" there facing the impact of Community Law. Following the central theme, the authors convey in detail the growing influences of Community Law on the cultural sector from the perspective of the development of the major themes of Community Law.;The writers provide a summerizing review of the acquis communautaire in various cultural fields and offer their analysis of the new provisions on cultural contained in the Maastricht Treaty on European Union. Applications and provisions of the EEC Treaty are discussed in addition to the legislative and policy actions developed by the Community and its relevance to the persuit of of cultural activities in the Member States; be it a positive or a negative integration process.
