Review

"This is a great textbook for students of international architectural conservation, as it boldly seeks to describe the historical and theoretical roots of heritage conservation, the current organizational structure and key elements of practice on a continental, regional and then national basis."—Journal of Architectural Conservation

“…in this book we have our first effort at a genuinely objective assessment and coherent international perception of the accomplishments of individual nations."—Marek Baranski in Conservation News – Journal of the Association of Monument Conservators, (Warsaw)

“Aimed at the professional and probably most helpful to architects tackling conservation problems, it is both approachable and encyclopaedic in its coverage of architectural conservation theory and best of all is interesting to read.” —Margaret Heathcote in Historic Environment, Volume 22, Number 3

“An astonishing feat of research, compilation and synthesis.” —Architectural Research Centers Consortium

"Much to consider here, and the authors, experts in their disciplines and capable writers of clear, solid prose, guide us unfailingly through the issues and the regions."—Museum

"After having analyzed the varied situations and with knowledge of the different conservation methods undertaken regionally, [this book] shows merit in its highlighting specific laws and regulations and restoration projects in the context of their particular cultural values."—Helvelius (Italy)

"Abundantly supplied with references and bibliographic sources, the book is a convenient resource for any design, planning, preservation, or policy professional involve in conservation, restoration, rehabilitation, or preservation, which at some point can mean any of us."—Stanley Stark, FAIA for Oculus, Winter 2011.

 “…the authors, experts in their disciplines and capable writers of clear, solid prose, guide us unfailingly through the issues and the regions.”—MUSEUM, the magazine of the American Association of Museums

“This is a great textbook for students of international architectural conservation, as it boldly seeks to describe the historical and theoretical roots of heritage conservation, the current organizational structure and key elements of practice on a continental, regional and then national basis, starting with Europe (from Ireland to Azerbaijan and including Iceland and Greenland) and ending across the Atlantic (from Canada to Chile including the Caribbean). Endnotes abound.”—Journal of Architectural Conservation, (British)

“An astonishing feat of research, compilation and synthesis. The book delivers the first major survey concerning the conservation of cultural heritage in both Europe and the Americas. Architectural Conservation in Europe and the Americas serves as a convenient resource for professionals, students, and anyone interested in the field.”—Architectural Research Centers Consortium (ARCC)
