While deaccessioning is an acceptable collection management option for most museums, it also has the potential to cause enormous public controversy. "Is it Okay to Sell the Monet?" brings together thoughtful essays presenting various perspectives on the practice. It is a valued, reasoned, and welcome addition to discussion of this often highly volatile topic. -- Steven Miller, Adjunct Professor, ret., Seton Hall University MA Program in Museum Professions, Seton Hall University, South Orange, NJ.
