'Conservation: Principles, Dilemmas, and Uncomfortable Truths'
presents multi-perspective critical analyses of the ethics and
principles that guide the conservation of works of art and design,
archaeological artefacts, buildings, monuments, and heritage sites
on behalf of society. Contributors from the fields of philosophy,
sociology, history, art and design history, museology, conservation,
architecture, and planning and public policy address a wide range of
conservation principles, practices, and theories from the US,
Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, encouraging the reader to
make comparisons across subjects and disciplines. By wrestling with
and offering ways of disentangling the ethical dilemmas confronting
those who maintain and sustain cultural heritage for today and
tomorrow, 'Conservation: Principles, Dilemmas, and Uncomfortable
Truths' provides an essential reference text for conservation
professionals, museum and heritage professionals, art and cultural
historians, lecturers and students, and all others invested in
cultural heritage theories and practices.
