book gathers key contributions on how the nation is
constructed and represented. What role do cultural
institutions play in creating and shaping our sense
of national identity and of belonging to a nation?
With an international perspective, the contributors
investigate whether cultural artefacts can represent
individuals equally, as members of a given nation.

p., ill., bibl., index. ISBN: 0-7185-1775-X.
volume presents 14 essays which constitute case studies
from countries such as Nigeria, Brazil, Australia,
Saudi Arabia, etc., and examine the role of museums
in creating and maintaining cultural and national
identity. Museums are social institutions and, as
such, agents of social change. Thought-provoking questions,
considered in the context of different possible responses
and solutions, are the core of this work. Can a nation
lose its culture? Do Pacific Islanders really want
museums? What should one do with important religious,
social, political objects when ideas and contexts
change? Is the establishment of a museum the best
solution? Who has the right to control and manage
heritage? Who can speak for culture? Is democratisation
of culture a good thing? Are museums too politically
correct and on the path to Disneyland?
