Heritage Planning published

Heritage Planning: Principles and Process, by Harold Kalman, was published by Routledge in Fall 2014. Intended for practitioners and students in heritage conservation / historic preservation throughout the English-speaking world, and of interest to many general readers, the book provides a comprehensive overview of heritage planning as professional practice. It begins with the context and principles of heritage planning, including law, planning, and international heritage doctrine. The book then takes a pragmatic look at the process of heritage practice, including understanding the historic place, determining heritage significance, and ways to use best conservation practices to manage change. All is set within larger societal issues, such as sustainability and ethics.┬áThe book was launched in Hong Kong on October 11, sponsored by Routledge, the Architectural Conservation Programmes at the University of Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong Institute of Architectural Conservationists.
