520    "Theory without practice is empty, practice without theory
       is blind, to adapt a phrase from Immanuel Kant. The 
       sentiment could not be truer of cultural heritage ethics. 
       This intra-disciplinary book bridges the gap between 
       theory and practice by bringing together a stellar cast of
       academics, activists, consultants, journalists, lawyers, 
       and museum practitioners, each contributing their own 
       expertise to the wider debate of what cultural heritage 
       means in the twenty-first century.  Cultural Heritage 
       Ethics provides cutting-edge arguments built on case 
       studies of cultural heritage and its management in a range
       of geographical and cultural contexts. Moreover, the 
       volume feels the pulse of the debate on heritage ethics by
       discussing timely issues such as access, acquisition, 
       archaeological practice, curatorship, education, ethnology,
       historiography, integrity, legislation, memory, museum 
       management, ownership, preservation, protection, public 
       trust, restitution, human rights, stewardship, and 
       tourism. This volume is neither a textbook nor a manifesto
       for any particular approach to heritage ethics, but a 
       snapshot of different positions and approaches that will 
       inspire both thought and action. Cultural Heritage Ethics 
       provides invaluable reading for students and teachers of 
       philosophy of archaeology, history and moral philosophy - 
       and for anyone interested in the theory and practice of 
       cultural preservation."--Publisher's website.
