The opening of the New Acropolis Museum in Athens in spring 2008 provides the opportunity to re-state the case for the return of the Elgin Marbles to Athens. The British Museum's long-standing objection that there is nowhere in Athens to house the Marbles is answered in emphatic style. Meanwhile, decisions concerning the restitution of cultural artefacts are increasingly recognized as of national importance, and are no longer left solely to curators and museum directors. With new contributions from leading authorities, this new edition of Christopher Hitchens' elegantly argued and characteristically forthright book will make a powerful contribution to ensuring that the Marbles return to their place of origin.
