The Parthenon Marbles: London or Athens?

Just to get away from election campaigns for a minute (but definitely sticking with thems of democratic governance), I finally decided that the British Museum should hand back its ill-gotten Parthenon marbles. It is unlikely, but it should take place as part of a wider reckoning of imperial plunder held in Western museums – including in Australian. My review of the book by celebrity barrister Geoffrey Robertson appeared in Inside Story.
