9780701131630: The Elgin Marbles: Should They Be Returned to Greece

In this full-length contribution to the fiercely debated issue of the Elgin Marbles, Christopher Hitchens recounts the history of these precious sculptures and forcefully makes the case for their return to Greece. Hitchens draws out the artistic, moral, legal and political perspectives of the argument and includes two essays along with his own: 'The Parthenon in History' (1987) by Robert Browning and 'Restoration and the New Museum' (1997) by Graham Binns. First published in 1987.
