Summary:
"This is a book about museums over the last half century. It is about my work in these institutions, as 'the exhibitionist' of the title, but also my experiences as a director and a student, as an archaeologist and a techie, as a curator and a collector. It roughly follows my career on its zigzagging course from New York to Israel and back again. Along the way it also recounts the efforts of my able colleagues, from the deep ranks of the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the mayor of Jerusalem, from university scholars to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis"--Introduction.
