"This volume documents in historical detail the specific circumstances in which human remains were acquired by museums, and raises the emotive issue of what should be done to redress past wrongs." Patricia Davison, foreword to 2000 edition

Includes a new foreword by Lalou Meltzer. A new postscript by Ciraj Rassool and Martin Legassick discusses possible future approaches to the still unresolved challenges of repatriation and restitution.
