Preface: Critical Perspectives on Archaeology, Heritage, and Tourism
Neither by the public, nor by those who have the care of the public monuments, is the true meaning of restoration understood. It means the most total destruction which a building can suf_fer: a destruction out of which no remnants can be gathered: a destruction accompanied by a false description of the thing destroyed. Do not let us deceive ourselves in this ...

Chapter 2. Collecting Japan’s Curios: World Fairs, Imperial Tombs, and Preservation Laws
T_he idea of ?national objects? being collected and catalogued as commodi-ties for display and exhibition can be traced back to the mid-nineteenth century, when world fairs were staged in the capitals of Europe. Far-f_lung nations and colonized outposts of the British and French empires from India, Africa, Asia, and Australia competed with established colonial enter-...
Chapter 3. Tracing Japan’s Lineage: Art, Architecture, and Conquest Dynasties
Balancing the ?old and the new,? that is, promoting free trade and com-merce on the one hand, and enforcing protectionist measures to staunch the outf_low of antiquities on the other, posed a major dilemma for Japan?s senior statesman, It? Hirobumi (one.taboldstyleeight.taboldstylefour.taboldstyleone.taboldstyle?one.taboldstylenine.taboldstylezero.taboldstylenine.taboldstyle), who served as the f_irst prime minister of the new cabinet (see f_ig. six.taboldstyle.six.taboldstyle) from one.taboldstyleeight.taboldstyleeight.taboldstylefive.taboldstyle to one.taboldstyleeight.taboldstyleeight.taboldstyleeight.taboldstyle.

Chapter 5. Excavating Korea’s Past: Colonialists, Archaeologists, and Nostalgic Ruins
T_he Korean peninsula became the f_ield of choice for Tokyo University graduates due to a variety of intertwined economic, political, and research agendas. First, the banning of most tomb excavations had a crippling ef_fect on the f_ield of scientif_ic archaeology that had once shown so much promise in the early Meiji era (Oba one.taboldstylenine.taboldstylethree.taboldstylefive.taboldstyle; Yagi Shizuyama one.taboldstylenine.taboldstylethree.taboldstylefive.taboldstyle). Consequently, ambi-...
Chapter 6. Rediscovering the Homelands: Travel Myths, Images, and the Narrative of Return
T_he peninsula?s geographic proximity to and strategic location at the cross-roads of three empires, China, Russia and Japan, made Korea an early target for the emerging Japanese tourist industry in the early twentieth century (see table six.taboldstyle). By the one.taboldstyleeight.taboldstylenine.taboldstylezero.taboldstyles, ships from Japan?s oldest international shipping company, the Nippon Y?sen Kaisha (NYK), were already delivering mail, ...
Conclusion. Contested Ownership: The Plunder and the Return of Cultural Treasures

These aesthetic tastes and prefer-...
