Art and Cultural Heritage is appropriately, not solely, about the law-national and international-respecting cultural heritage. It is a bubbling cauldron of law mixed with ethics, philosophy, politics and working principles about how cultural heritage law, policy and practice should be sculpted from the past as the present becomes the future. The authors explore these demanding concerns, untangle basic values, and look critically at the conflicts and contradictions in existing art and cultural heritage law and policy in its diverse sectors. The rich and provocative contributions collectively provide a reasoned discussion of the issues from a multiplicity of views to permit the reader to understand the theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of the cultural heritage debate.
