Archaeology Under Fire: Nationalism, Politics and Heritage in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East

Lynn Meskell
Routledge, 1998 - 251 pages
This volume addresses archaeology's role in current political issues in the Middle East and eastern Mediterranean, including the ethnic cleansing in the Balkans, the division of Cyprus, and the continued destruction of Beirut. The contributors consider the positive role of the past as a means of reconciliation, whether it be in Turkey, Israel, or the Gulf. They advocate a responsible global archaeology, and an awareness of contemporary issues.
