This revised and expanded third edition addresses the many legal developments-including a comprehensive discussion of stolen art and the international movement of cultural property, recent developments in copyright, and the effects of burgeoning electronic uses-that have occurred during the past twenty-five years. An authorative, go-to book for any museum professional, Legal Primeroffers detailed explanations of the law, suggestions for preventing legal problems, and numerous case studies of lawsuits involving museum collections.
