   schema:reviewBody ""Making Representations explores the complex issues of cross-cultural interpretation within the context of museums and the impact of increasing collaboration between museums and communities. First published in 1996, the book has been revised and expanded with a new epilogue which describes the most recent developments in heritage preservation and museum repatriation policy in Australia, the USA and the UK at the birth of the new millennium." "This revised edition analyses the stumbling responses within Australia to calls for Aboriginal reconciliation, State and Federal Government reactions to Aboriginal demands for the protection of sacred sites and the repatriation of human remains. It describes the UK research which analysed museum policies and staff attitudes and which contributed to the publication of repatriation and restitution guidelines. Finally, it summarizes the impact of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act in the USA, ten years after implementation."--Jacket." ;
