The 8 essays of this volume derive from an eponymous symposium held at the U. of Notre Dame in February 2007. Presented by a distinguished group of archaeologists, art historians, museum directors, and professors of law, the essays discuss the ethical and practical issues that concern how antiquities come into museums, addressing in particular international laws against looting and purchasing looted goods, and the issues that archaeologists, museum directors, and historians face when studying goods acquired without provenance. An appendix contains the text of a UN Convention on cultural property. The volume is not indexed. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
