Abstract (English)

Drawing from the history of museums in Western Europe, Israel, the United States and the former Soviet Union, this collection of essays focuses on the governing ideologies behind the practices and strategies of display in institutions shown to be equally guided by historical structures and narratives. As the editors note, common themes and insights link the essays within and across their division into three separate sections: Histories, Discourses, and Spectacles. Index, 15 p. Biographical notes on contributors. Circa 500 bibl. ref.
