The return of cultural treasures to their homelands has become the subject of heated public debate in recent years, highlighted by the controversial case of the Elgin Marbles. In this important and pioneering work, Jeanette Greenfield discusses the historical, legal and political issues surrounding a wide cross-section of cases. Extremely readable and highly illustrated, this updated, revised edition includes new chapters on art treasures and museums in post-Soviet Russia, claims to the Vatican for Hebrew manuscripts, and the saga of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
