Published today on Museum Anthropology Review is an extended review essay by Michelle Tisdel Flikke in which she considers The Museum of the Battle of Ideas (el Museo a la Batalla de Ideas) in the Cuban town of Cardenas. This is the museum established by the Cuban government in the wake of the international custody battle centered on Elián González. The review essay is sure to be of interest to many professional readers in diverse fields as well as to the general public.
As a publishing matter, I am happy to note that this essay, which builds upon the momentum gained with the recent publishing of Karen Duffy’s review essay on Pueblo pottery, is our first to offer a large number of author-submitted photographs. The ability to publish these color photographs at negligible cost highlights the value of this new media.
Appreciation is extended to Dr. Flikke for her interesting contribution. Readers will find her essay here.
