Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The American Association of Museums, reacting to the current concerns on Holocaust-era art theft, has produced a guide to the field. Initial chapters describe provenance, its importance, and how provenance research is carried out and recorded. The remaining three-fourths of the book is devoted to the principles and methods of Holocaust-era provenance research, with lists and appendices of archives and resources both in the States and abroad. This is a thorough and well-illustrated book. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
