Chapter 2, Corporate Patronage: Signs and Portents, describes various projects supported by business. Chapter 3, The State of the Arts, discusses the goals of the arts and how these might be best achieved; it also covers personnel problems of arts organizations. Chapter 4, Symphony Orchestras in the Seventies, examines the correlation between artistic excellence and public support of productions, particularly musical productions. Chapter 5, How Corporations Support the Arts, explores in depth the developing role of the corporation in the cultural life of our cities; it also names artistic undertakings that owe their existence to the support of private corporations. Chapter 6, Who Should Be an Arts Administrator?, discusses management qualifications. Chapter 7, Confessions of a Public Relations Man, presents an optimistic view of the possibility of business and the arts working together to raise the quality of communications in general.
