"This major new resource is a much-needed support to the few textbooks in the field and offers an excellent introduction and overview both to established principles and new thinking in cultural heritage management. Leading experts from Europe, North America and Australia bring together recent and innovative works in the field, with geographically and thematically diverse case studies, and examine the theoretical framework for heritage resource management.
'The Heritage Reader' brings together texts of the past decade with an overview of earlier literature and essays that fill the gaps in between, providing students of all stages as well as heritage professionals with a clear picture of new and older literature. A substantial introduction sets out the importance of the subject and key issues and debates, while separate thematic introductions with comprehensive reading lists provide the background to a collection of key works, many of which remained, up until now, of limited accessibility. The Reader presents a series of new ideas regarding the nature and management of cultural heritage, which are set discursively within the framework of more established views of cultural heritage management.
With good coverage of major issues and solutions from around the world, the Heritage Reader will appeal to students internationally across the English-speaking world, and will stand as a key guide to the study and practice of heritage management."
