From a legal perspective, see:

On international destruction, see:

F. Francioni - F. Lenzerini, " The Destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan and International Law ", European Journal of International Law, 2003, p.619-651.

A good survey of such deliberate form of destructions, primarily for political and ideological reasons, is provided by :

Rebecca Knuth, Lybricide, Praeger Publishers, 2003, 254 p. (276 p. with Index). The focus of the book is best reflected by its subtitle: " the Regime-sponsored Destruction of Books and Libraries in the Twentieth Century ".

For a comparative analysis of the relevant international instruments and general private international law, see :

G.Carducci, La restitution internationale des biens culturels et des objets d'art - Droit commun, directive CEE, Conventions de l'UNESCO et de l'UNIDROIT, Paris, LGDJ, 1997.
