Sustaining Heritage: Giving the Past a Future

by: Tony Gilmour
published by: Sydney University Press


How much of our built environment should be preserved for future generations.? Who should decide what we keep and what we demolish? Who will pay the bill for heritage conservation?

With examples from Australia and the UK, this book debates the commercialisation of heritage and argues that market forces offer more opportunities and threats. A business-like approach to conservation coupled with greater public participation in decision making will help give the past a future.
