Overview

New approaches to both cultural landscapes and historic urban landscapes increasingly recognize the need to guide future change, rather than simply protecting the fabric of the past. Challenging traditional notions of historic preservation, Conserving Cultural Landscapes takes a dynamic multifaceted approach to conservation. It builds on the premise that a successful approach to urban and cultural landscape conservation recognizes cultural as well as natural values, sustains traditional connections to place, and engages people in stewardship where they live and work. It brings together academics within the humanities and humanistic social sciences, conservation and preservation professionals, practitioners, and stakeholders to rethink the meaning and practice of cultural heritage conservation, encourage international cooperation, and stimulate collaborative research and scholarship.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The conservation of cultural landscapes and towns becomes ever more difficult in the face of major global threats and the increase in interests to be considered. This book will provide the management of such sites with clear priorities and a range of fascinating case-studies to negotiate a successful future."Peter Howard, Bournemouth University, UK

"This is the most comprehensive study of cultural landscapes published to date. The editors have succeeded in bringing together a stellar list of contributors. Those interested in cultural landscapes, how the concept has evolved around the world, and the complex challenges that now define their preservation will find much of interest in this field defining publication." – Tim Winter, Deakin University, Australia

"This book is an excellent snapshot of where cultural landscapes are today. It is a delight to have large living and lived-in landscapes with their complex values and multiple challenges addressed within the context of heritage."Susan Buggey, University of Montreal, Canada
