Future Has Other Plans : Planning Holistically to Conserve Natural and Cultural Heritage (Paperback)
About this item
Crisis has enveloped the 200,000 nationally and locally protected natural and cultural heritage sites around the world, as well as many thousands more at local levels. Heritage managers those who manage natural heritage sites such as national parks, wilderness areas, and biosphere reserves, as well as those who manage cultural heritage sites such as historic monuments, battlefields, old buildings, and ancient rock art sites have an urgent responsibility to confront this crisis, and each day that they don’t, our planet irreplaceably loses more of our common heritage. Heritage management experts Jonathan Kohl and Stephen McCool argue that bureaucracy is at the root of this crisis. National, state, and local park and historic monument managers alike still obey the norms of technocratic logic, hierarchical control, and bureaucratic procedure. But these characteristics are already dinosaurs in a world of rapid change.The Future Has Other Plans provides an innovative and modern solution for preserving these valuable sites. Merging interdisciplinary and innovative management paradigms, the authors outline a new holistic planning that integrates the disciplines of heritage management and conservation with operational realities.
