Robertson explores a debate that divides the world of art and culture- the restitution of heritage treasures removed in earlier times from subjugated peoples. His judgement is uncompromising- cultural heritage belongs to the people of whose history it is a part, unless its return would be attended by danger to the artwork itself. And since the movement for the restitution of cultural property is based on human rights, governments that want it back must show respect for the rights of the peoples on whose behalf they make the claim.
