Review:

"Combining important historical texts, classic critical analyses, and current commentary on the museum, this anthology is a unique resource for Museum Studies. It is especially useful in assembling sophisticated discussions of many kinds of institutions, including museums of art, history, anthropology, and natural history." Bruce Altshuler, New York University


"The rich diversity of contexts and commentaries in this collection reveals the fascination of the museum not only for curators and museologists, but also for anthropologists, architects, politicians, historians, critics, and poets. The breadth of the survey is a timely reminder that the condition of our museums is and has always been a barometer of social attitudes and change." Helen Rees Leahy, University of Manchester

From the Back Cover:

Offering encyclopedic coverage of the issues critical to the rise and role of the museum history and development; relation to society; the ethics of classification, exhibition, and exclusion; the representation of cultures; property and ownership; the poetics of display; material culture and historical documentation; tradition, innovation, and self–reflexivity in museum practice this is the most comprehensive and ambitious volume available on museum studies.The Anthology opens with an introductory essay that provides vital background and situates museum studies in a truly interdisciplinary context.
