Written for the layperson, this book contains a wide range of legal references and offers practical advice for collectors, dealers, and artists. Chapters discuss art as it is defined by customs authorities, as it exists as an international movement, as it suffers under conditions of war, and as an investment. They also address issues like auctions, authentication, insurance, taxes, aid to the arts, copyright, and freedom of expression. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
