Editorial Reviews


Why is Africa's past disappearing at an unusual rate? Contributors here are African government and museum officials, journalists and members of international agencies who examine the network of trafficking and looting which is plundering Africa's archaeological and historical heritage. Each contributor provides a scholarly, technical viewpoint based on a particular concern or focus: the result is an excellent college-level text. -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
