Back cover copy

This book examines heritage protection in the United States and how it has been implemented in specific cases. Contributors challenge the division of heritage into nature, the built environment, and culture. They describe cultural conservation as an integrated process for resource planning and recommended supplanting the current prescriptive approach with one that is more responsive to grass-roots cultural concerns.show more
