A series of specially commissioned, authoritative essays by authors from seven countries and from a wide perspective, explore some of the major developments in European museums as they attempt to maintain their role in a culturally and politically unstable world. The essays present a wide range of views on museums, exhibitions and museum education. They embrace case studies, general reviews and theoretical analyses and discuss the museum as communicator and educator in the context of current cultural concerns.
