Excerpt from Popular Science Monthly, Vol. 92: April, 1918 Until a few weeks ago no automobile had been able to penetrate the wilds of this canyon. The road was little more than a burro trail. The boulders were many, the sand holes deep, and the grades heavy. Joe was present when the first car broke its way into the canyon. When he spied those black-tread non-skids he let out a yell, At last his sole leather problem was solved. The morning after securing a discarded, tire Joe, appeared with his shoes non-skidded.

Arts and Business aims at bringing arts and business scholars together in a dialogue about a number of key topics that today form different understandings in the two disciplines. Arts and business are, many times, positioned as opposites. Where one is providing symbolic and aesthetic immersion, the other is creating goods for a market and markets for a good. They often deal and struggle with the same issues, framing it differently and finding different solutions. This book has the potential of offering both critical theoretical and empirical understanding of these subjects and guiding further exploration and research into this field. Although this dichotomy has a well-documented existence, it is reconstructed through the writing-out of business in art and vice versa. This edited volume distinguishes itself from other writings aimed at closing the gap between art and business, as it does not have a firm standpoint in one of these fields, but treating them as symmetrical and equal. The belief that by giving art and business an equal weight, the editors also create the opportunity to communicate to a wider audience and construct a path forward for art and business to coexist.
