This compilation brings hard questions about culture, cultural heritage and society into better focus... The scholarship demonstrated here deserves a strong recommendation for making more explicit the link between cultural heritage provision and human rights. Heightened awareness of the connection and its darker side makes it easier to develop international standards to advance rights relating to cultural heritage. If the restorative and transformative dimensions of cultural heritage for society can be kept in view, as this work does, change may start to happen. -- Christa Roodt, University of Glasgow * International Journal of Heritage Studies *
It is explicitly a volume about "challenging legal discourses" and, as such, presents a timely contribution that sheds light on this particular angle of the link between heritage, culture, and rights. Overall, it is an interesting and accessible volume for anyone with an interest in heritage and rights, and a legal background is not strictly necessary. -- Anne-Laura Kraak, Faculty of Arts and Education, Deakin University, Victoria, Australia * International Journal of Cultural Property *
Heritage, Culture and Rights possesses the kind of academic breadth of vision that indicates that it is destined to become a classic book in its category. The growing acknowledgement of the importance of local and global questions emerging at the intersection of heritage studies, human rights and the development agenda ensures the future importance of a work that seeks to bridge the gap between disciplinary 'silos' and build a constructive dialogue between disciplines, values and stakeholders. -- Gabriele D'amico Soggetti, Freie Universitat * Australian Journal of Human Rights *
