Pub. Date: 02/14/2002
Publisher: Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Since the 1960s, public attention has been drawn increasingly towards the thematic link between historic preservation and urban planning. Nowadays, the organized historic preservation movement in the USA is more than a mere "yearning for history": it represents an active and integral part of urban plannig in U.S. cities. In order to approach these planning, econimic and social issues in the field of historic preservation, this book analytically applies a variety of interdisciplinary methods focusing on four selected historic districts within the CBDs (Central Business Districts) of Philadelphia and Boston (in the North) and Charleston and Savannah (in the South).
