Editorial Reviews


“A much called-for account on the state of cultural heritage management in the Caribbean. Siegel and righter are to be applauded for having assembled so many authors (mostly local) from so many islands. It is both timely and original in set up, and the questions posed cover a broad range of relevant issues from policy making to practice. In this respect it suits well the worldwide heritage debate.”—Corinne L. Hofman, Faculty of Archaeology, University of Leiden

"There are some very progressive and smart ideas in this book that could positively change the current lackluster preservation environment for the Caribbean. . . . This book is an excellent first step in understanding how the dual goals of promoting development and protecting national heritage can both be met through compromise, consultation, informed research, and by setting up systems of accountability.”—Journal of Caribbean Archaeology

The authors Siegel and Righter are very well acquainted with the subject matter of this work - an island by island review of the preservation programs and their history in the Caribbean. Highly recommend this work for people interested in historic preservation, archaeology, and heritage tourism.
