  • Outline : Amazon: "This volume examines the questions and conflicts that arise in managing the historic rural landscape. The book: confronts the major issues facing heritage managers today, such as evaluating what is significant in the landscape, the relationship of landscape management to the preservation of historic buildings, and issues arising when the landscape needs to be used for another purpose; presents these issues in a case-study format - so that those actively working in the field can provide context and explain the issues which are most important to their work; provides case studies which are edited, introduced and commented upon to draw out the pressing and controversial issues for students; and brings together a broad range of perspectives from archaeology, ecology and government agencies to provide a comprehensive overview of policy and practice.
