A provocative contribution to the current debate on museums, this collection of essays contains contributions from France, Britain, Australia, the USA and Canada.


'This publication, while in many ways as critical of some museum developments as Hewison's book [Heritage Industry], is by far the more informed and better argued.' - Scottish Museum News

`A solid and challenging book which deserves a wide audience … there is a need for more like it.' - Heritage Outlook

About the Series


The Comedia series features new theoretical and empirical work exploring the dynamics of the arts and culture industries, and addressing critical issues in the field of contemporary popular culture: issues of production, design, marketing, and consumption. While the principle focus is contemporary, the series also offers historical, educational, and policy-oriented perspectives across a broad range of media and cultural forms, from the news media to the visual arts.
