MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is an important book, destined one hopes to be essential reading for those involved in urban conservation globally: scholars, practitioners, managers, students." ("Landscape Research Journal", 2012)


"But for the time being, we can dispassionately recommend that this book becomes the manual not only of professional planners, conservation officers and managers of heritage sites worldwide, but also of academics and students, of landscape designers, architects and engineers and of everyone involved in urban conservation and management, because there is no target audience for a book that is at the same time militant and historical." ("Planning Perspectives", 11 March 2013)
