It will contain the original text plus a new introductory essay reviewing the argument about ‘the heritage industry’ that followed first publication in 1985. Also included is ‘Sneering at the Theme Parks’, a conversation on the same subject with Tim Putnam, first published in Block in 1989 and presently posted here under the  theme ‘Heritage & History’. Read details and also the new introduction, ‘Heritage and the Place of Criticism’ here»
