Sustaining heritage: giving the past a future
Sydney University Press
How much of our built environment should be preserved for future generations?
Using examples from Australia and the United Kingdom, this book debates the commercialisation of heritage and argues that market forces offer more opportunities than threats. A business-like approach to conservation coupled with greater public participation in decision making will help to give the past a future.
Sustaining Heritage is recommended reading for planners, policy makers, conservation professionals and anyone concerned about how we should best preserve and interpret our rich historical legacy.
