It is an ideal introduction to the field for students and homeowners, local officials, and community leaders.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In non-technical language, architect Tyler (historic preservation, Eastern Michigan U.) explains the philosophy and history of the movement, the role of government, the documentation and designation of historic properties, establishing a historical district, sensitive architectural design and planning, technology, and economics. He illustrates many of the terms in the glossary, but does not indicate how to pronounce them. The 1994 edition was titled . Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Old Mill News
“[T]he classic textbook for the field.”
Civil Engineering
“Historic Preservation is a book that, in being named after its subject, invites high expectations and meets them all.”
The Midwest Book Review
“Libraries strong in architecture and historic preservation will find the second updated edition of Historic Preservation a winner.”
The New England Antiques Journal
“[A] thorough introduction to the sometimes complicated subject of historic preservation….clear and concise…Current with today’s issues.”
Preservation Education & Research
“[I]ndispensable….the authors and the book’s editorial advisors accomplish what no others have to date. This is the intellectually accessible basic textbook—that Preservation 101 we all have been seeking. It is useful as a basic reader in the undergraduate classroom, serves as a quick reference for graduate students…and provides information for professionals in foreign countries on how preservation is practiced in the United States. It can also be dipped into as needed by preservation volunteers who, after all, form the backbone of American preservation on a community level.”
Alabama Trust for Historic Preservation
“[D]eserves a place in the home of anyone interested in the activities of preservation….If we could have only one book on the practice of historic preservation, this may well be that book.”
Colonial Latin American Historical Review
“This book is recommended to students, planners, and citizens interested in the preservation and protection of our local, regional, and national patrimony.”
Paul Hardin Kapp - Bulletin of the Illinois Geographical Society
“…an impressive textbook…As someone who teaches historic preservation theory to architects, I am looking forward to using Historic Preservation as one of my textbooks next year. I will also recommend this book to anyone interested in historic preservation. Local government officials, historic district commissioners and even owners of historic buildings can all benefit from reading this book.”

…an impressive textbook…As someone who teaches historic preservation theory to architects, I am looking forward to using Historic Preservation as one of my textbooks next year. I will also recommend this book to anyone interested in historic preservation. Local government officials, historic district commissioners and even owners of historic buildings can all benefit from reading this book.
Tim Cannan
“[A]n essential resource that should be in the library of any preservationist.”
Dr. Barbara E. Mattick
“When I first started teaching historic preservation, Norman Tyler's Historic Preservation, published in 2000, was the best, and perhaps only, book available to provide an overview of the entire field of historic preservation. For nearly ten years he has made what can be a confusing process accessible to students, property owners, local officials, business leaders....Now, his second edition makes it even better....There are many reasons to praise the second edition of Historic Preservation, but I think the most useful aspects are the updated chapter on preservation economics and the whole new chapters on planning, sustainability...and heritage tourism, cultural landscapes and heritage corridors or areas.”
