"This is a well-researched, detailed book that presents much food for thought for museum managers and staff."
-Collection Management,vol.30, no 4
"...one of the greatest strengths of this book is the format itself. The text is supported with a range of boxes and other illustrative forms that serve to emphasise and break down key points: indeed a useful addition to a book that attempts to cover such a variety of themes...This book serves as a reader-friendly reference and is a very useful tool for museum and heritage professionals as well as students in relevant fields of study." - Dr Georgios Alexopoulos, University of York
