Cultural Heritage and the Future for the first time brings together a diverse, international group of scholars and experts interested in the relations between cultural heritage and the future. `Preserving the past for the future' is an oft used phrase but what that future will be has never before attracted substantial research and debate in heritage studies. The present book offers a balance of theoretical and empirical content, with extensive case-studies from the US, Europe and Australia. Intended to stimulate multidisciplinary debate and discussion the book will explicitly address an interdisciplinary audience within heritage studies and heritage management.
