Drawing on unique first-hand experience, Andrew Thompson and Andrew Cook chronicle the triumphs and disappointments of what became one of the most far-reaching heritage projects ever seen. The episodes of the story, as they unfold, provide a fascinating yet candid behind-the-scenes look at an intriguing multi-national venture.
