From one of America's foremost experts in museum and cultural heritage law, Museum Law: A Guide for Officers, Directors, and Counsel is a comprehensive guide to both U.S. and international laws and conventions affecting museums, art galleries, natural and historic heritage, and other cultural organizations. The fourth edition details laws protecting art and artists, cultural and natural heritage, U.S. and international law, regulations for tax-exempt status, and much more. This book also includes an unprecedented look at museums' unrelated business taxable income from such increasingly common activities as gifts shops, snack bars, travel tours, and sponsorships. No museum, cultural heritage site, or historical site can afford to be without it.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Unlike some museum law reference books that relegate cases to footnotes, Professor Phelan weaves them into her chapters, making them an important part of the discussion. This is an effective way to draw attention to real scenarios. In the end, it is the case law that will inform how a decision should be made. Case law gets lost in footnotes, and practitioners waste time looking for cases on point after reading basic summaries in treatises. Professor Phelan's treatment of the cases prevents this from happening. -- Darlene Fairman, Counsel, Herrick Feinstein LLP
Dr. Phelan's approach to the protection of cultural properties is pragmatic and informative honed from her many years of experiences teaching museum and international law at Texas Tech University, research and her previous books as well as her work with the International Council of Museums. Dr. Phelan's passion is infectious. This book does not disappoint and it will be a mainstay in any cultural property professional's library. -- Roxanne M. Merritt, JFK Special Warfare Museum, Fort Bragg, North Carolina
This expanded edition of the now classic Museum Law by Marilyn Phelan is an amazing volume. As legal issues for museums grow more numerous and complex, this volume offers solid direction and sage advice in the areas of governance and collections. Furthermore, it delivers an invaluable international perspective that reflects the growing awareness of international concerns affecting collections in US museums. This thought-provoking volume is a critical tool in maintaining the legal health of a museum and should be consulted frequently. Applicable to all types and sizes of museums, it is a must-read not only for museum directors, but for board members and curators alike. For graduate Museum Studies programs educating emerging professionals, this is an essential and illuminating volume appropriate to a variety of courses dealing with governance, collections, and heritage laws. -- Eileen Johnson, Chair of Museum Science, Texas Tech University and Executive Director of The Museum of Texas Tech University
