MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book is a welcome contribution to the field of Industrial Heritage in providing an overview of the state-of-the-art of industrial heritage world-wide, in defining the field, in serving as a guide to best practices, and in setting forth international standards for the recording, documentation, conservation, evaluation and presentation of industrial heritage sites. It is a must read for anyone working in the field, and will prove highly interesting and informative to members of the general public who are curious to know what industrial heritage is all about." - Robert Passfield, Senior Historian Emeritus, Parks Canada

"As befits the organisation it comes from, the scope of the book is truly international. Based around the 2003 Nizhny Tagil Charter (usefully appended at the end) the book aims to flesh out the doctrines and be a `definitive international guide to contemporary best practice'. ... It is a book to dip into for advice from some of the best-informed players in industrial heritage for iconicxamples and for best practice, ... It is also a key publication for any university reading list with courses that deal with aspects relevant to industrial heritage." - David de Haan, Industrial Archaeology Review
