Gail Anderson's insightful reflections on change effectively contextualize a wealth of readings that have been instrumental in shaping our understanding of the changing roles of museums in society. This exceptional anthology will remind seasoned professionals of where we've come from and stimulate thinking about where we are going-and will build emergent professionals' understanding of the complex forces that are influencing contemporary museum practice. -- Joy Davis, University of Victoria

Praise for the first edition: Because its conceptual framework and essays so faithfully represent the reigning orthodoxy in American museums, Reinventing the Museum is the perfect survey text for introductory courses and undergraduate offerings in history, art history, anthropology, and museum studies. * Museum News *
