This is the intellectually accessible basic textbook—that Preservation 101 we all have been seeking. It is useful as a basic reader in the undergraduate classroom, serves as a quick reference for graduate students…and provides information for professionals in foreign countries on how preservation is practiced in the United States. It can also be dipped into as needed by preservation volunteers who, after all, form the backbone of American preservation on a community level. — Preservation Education & Research[A]n essential resource that should be in the library of any preservationist. — Tim Cannan, President (PreservationDirectory.com)This book is recommended to students, planners, and citizens interested in the preservation and protection of our local, regional, and national patrimony. — Colonial Latin American Historical Review[T]he classic textbook for the field. — Old Mill News[D]eserves a place in the home of anyone interested in the activities of preservation….If we could have only one book on the practice of historic preservation, this may well be that book. — Alabama Trust for Historic Preservation…an impressive textbook…As someone who teaches historic preservation theory to architects, I am looking forward to using Historic Preservation as one of my textbooks next year. I will also recommend this book to anyone interested in historic preservation. Local government officials, historic district commissioners and even owners of historic buildings can all benefit from reading this book. — Paul Hardin Kapp (Bulletin of the Illinois Geographical Society)
