'This extensive work is a critical examination and comparison of heritage protection laws and policies from all continents and many different countries, with special reference to the architecture of the 20th century. The main focus is on contemporary rather than historical heritage, although readers' involvement in broader issues will grow steadily as they follow the spontaneous progression from the single monument across to broader urban and socio-economic contexts. The framework within which this investigation and reflection upon Time and History takes place is that period of time which is laid down by many legislations for the proper recognition and consequent protection of heritage. The pattern that emerges reveals a wide variety of different models and sensibilities, enabling us to fully comprehend the motivation behind heritage protection and the tangible and intangible values targeted by said protection.' - Giovanni Carbonara, Emeritus Professor, Sapienza - University of Rome, Italy
'At the beginning of the 21st century, the architecture of the previous century has obtained international recognition as heritage. Time Frames offers an authoritative reference on the state of the art, giving the first comprehensive overview on the conservation rules and current protection policies of modern heritage in over 100 countries. While the Modern Movement in Architecture and Urban Planning had its origins in the Western World, it soon spread to other regions. Consequently, in addition to Europeans and North Americans, the leading architects in Latin America, Asia, Africa, and in the Arab region, have created master pieces already recognized in UNESCO's World Heritage List. Further to the country profiles, the publication also includes general articles by conservation professionals on issues dealing with the identity and recognition of modern architecture.' - Jukka Jokilehto, Honorary Visiting Professor - University of York, UK
'Time Frames: Conservation Policies for Twentieth-Century Architectural heritage, edited by Ugo Carughi and Massimo Visone, is advisable for all those interested in the issues related to the contemporary architecture policy selection.' - Raffaele Amore, University of Naples "Federico II", Italy
