Klappentext
Praise for Time Honored: A Global View of Architectural Conservation, a Choice Outstanding Academic Book

"Time Honored is the sort of book that a student reads first out of necessity, and then returns to many times in the course of professional practice for an infusion of the valuable perspective this book thoughtfully offers." Choice magazine

A comprehensive survey of architectural heritage protection covering the practices and traditions of countries from three continentsfrom Russia to Canada to Chile

Following the acclaimed Time Honored: A Global View of Architectural Conservation, this book explores the rich architectural legacies of Europe and North and South America to describe "best practices" in architectural conservation, focusing on the histories, structure, key participants, special challenges, solutions, and specific contributions made by some sixty-seven countries. Written to stand alone from the predecessor volume, Architectural Conservation in Europe and the Americas is:

  • Approached in a style that eschews technical terms, jargon, and arcane facts and instead features engaging discoveries, developments, and solutions of interest to professionals, students, and laypeople

  • Co-written by the author of the acclaimed Time Honored: A Global View of Architectural Conservation

  • Illustrated throughout with over 600 photographs and maps

  • Filled throughout with sidebar specialty essays highlighting topics of cross-regional interest for improved readability, often contributed by recognized experts in the field

  • Complete with abundant references to sources, related ideas and trends, pointers for further information, and appendices of related bibliographic sources

The first comprehensive survey that examines in detail architectural conservation practice on a wide comparative basis, Architectural Conservation in Europe and the Americas serves as a convenient resource for professionals, students, and anyone interested in the field.
