This authoritative book offers contributions from leading practitioners and scholars presenting an assessment of the current state of conservation in the UK. In addition to tracing the developments in conservation over the past fifty years it raises concerns about ambivalence within goverment towards heritage protection. It considers the need for a clear understanding of the value of architectural heritage; the importance of training; adequate funding for maintenance, and support at a local and community level. It also discusses the rle of the amenity societies and provides a useful comparison of the national and regulation driven process operating in the UK with the US local and incentive driven approach.

From the Review:

....essential reading for all concerned with our heritage, not just for professionals. With the power of English Heritage diluted and expertise disspated, action is now or heriatge faces a bleak future.
