This book is concerned with conservation in Mosul Old City, especially with the magnificent traditional houses which are under threat of demolition. The appalling and increasing destruction of Mosul's unique heritage is mainly being caused by an official action.
The book concludes with general and specific recommendations on the need of greater action and a more systematic comprehensive approach to protecting, documenting and enhancing the cultural heritage of the nation, the creation of a conservation authority, the need for greater allocation of funds and the training of staff for this specific type of work.
