MEDIA REVIEWS
This book will be a useful reference or text for those committed to teaching through case studies. The cases are concisely written, yet they include dialogue and are rich in detail. Since they illustrate a broad range of museum management problems, the book is most useful as an undergraduate text or in an introductory course. The usefulness of the cases will be enhanced through class discussion and pedagogies that encourage development of Canadian examples or adaptation to the Canadian context. The book will be useful as a teaching text and of interest to museum educators. * Muse Magazine *
This is a most welcome and long-needed book. Museum professionals and public history educators will greatly benefit from Chmelik's imaginative and useful case studies. It belongs on every museum studies required reading list. One can only hope that this is the first of a series of volumes bringing the case study approach to public history education. -- Ted Karamanski, Professor of History and Public History Director, Loyola University Chicago
