About the Author

Deakin University, Australia University of Melbourne, Australia


"William Logan and Keir Reeves are to be congratulated for putting together an outstanding collection of essays that critically evaluate the potentials and pitfalls of different sites of 'difficult heritage.' ... Importantly, these papers consistently strike the right tone between rigorous intellectual inquiry and respectful dialogue. The authors all seem acutely aware that these sites should not just be academic playthings but are vital to people's sense of personhood, history, and justice." -Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Current Anthropology, Volume 51, Number 3, June 2010
