One of the most prominent cultural aspects of late modernity is the continuous redefinition of the boundaries between the so-called “high culture” and “profana” culture. The transformation of the cultural order: the growing stylisation of everyday life (Featherstone, 2007) and the emergence of new fields of art already considered to be legitimate practise (e.g. urban art and photography) encouraged the creation of an art sociology able to cope with the changing relationship between art and society.For the wider professional audience, the book lanueva sociology of the arts: a Spanish-speaking and global perspective by Arturo Rodríguez Morató and Álvaro Santana Acuña can be understood as a contemporary response to the cultural dynamism written by representatives of the new sociology of the arts that have in common to be established in the international academic world. As international disciplinary speeches barely transcend the Spanish-speaking scientific world with the exception of canic figures such as Bourdieu, it is important to emphasise that the overall vision provided by the studies provides a current and broad picture of discipline trends.
