MEDIA REVIEWS
?Carbonell's anthology is now a distinguished standard, useful as a sourcebook for ideas, teaching, even research. Like the museums she addresses, the collection is marked by its capaciousness of thought and attitude.? - Bruce Robertson, University of California, Santa Barbara ?Addressing topics as diverse as indigenous curation and technological and cultural interactivity, this anthology challenges museum studies tradition, arguing for the relevance of museums while celebrating the challenges of museum work.? - Steven Lubar, Brown University ?If the first edition of this acclaimed anthology was a landmark, this revised and enlarged edition is even better - with an impressive transnational coverage of topics, issues, and trends in historical and contemporary museum practice that will be essential reading for scholars, students and professionals.? - Conal McCarthy, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand ?This new edition offers an innovative and timely perspective on locating the emerging themes and debates in museum studies today. An essential reader for both the scholar and student that combines in a single volume both classic essays and more esoteric, hard-to-find sources.? - Christopher B. Steiner, Connecticut College
