Review:

“This companion volume to Exhibiting Cultures contains a series of essays that illustrate both the struggles and the collaborations between museums and the communities they aim to serve. . . . The range of voices heard to great effect in the preceding book continue to speak out here. Strongly recommended.”—Library Journal

“[The editors] present a rich variety of thought-provoking ideas about the condition and possibilities of museums. The book challenges museum specialists to reassess their practices to ensure the relevance of museums in a changing world and offers valuable case studies of the kinds of problems and successes involved in making such changes.”—Journal of American History

“With a variety of case studies and perspectives in the spirit of interdisciplinary study, Museums and Communities is a provocative and fascinating collection, at once profound and concrete.”—American Book Review
