Book Review: Lara Kriegel, Grand Designs: Labor, Empire, and Museum in Victorian Culture

You wait ages for a post, and then two come along at once!

I’ve recently had a book review published in Museum & Society. Grand Designs is a useful text for researchers of museum history, national museums, the V&A and its antecedents, and the social role of museums in nineteenth century Britain.  Kriegel offers some valuable new perspectives for consideration. Recommended.
