 About the Book 

A book for all museum professionals, from the seasoned director to the student. Nine case studies of how museums have managed major change, and the effect such change has had on staff. Written from personal experience by senior staff from each museum, topics range from natural disaster to the death of a director, change in governance structure, merger, and fiscal collapse at institutions such as The New-York Historical Society, The Charleston (S.C.) Museum, and The Childrens Museum, Boston. With an introduction by psychologists Rina Elieli and Laurence J. Gould. Bibliography and index included.
