Manual of Heritage Management by Richard Harrison
This manual is designed to satisfy the considerable and expanding need in the heritage field for a volume of practical, authoritative information on good management practice. Published at the initiative of the Association of Independent Museums, the manual is aimed at those concerned with managing aspects of natural habitats, landscapes, archaeological sites and historical structures, including the urban environment, both in the UK and overseas. It discusses basic principles such as research and conservation, and covers the marketing operation of heritage sites. Case studies are included to illustrate the five main sections. Curators, managers and conservators working in museums, national parks, historical structures, archeological sites, and all those working in the field of heritage management should find this a useful and practical reference book with its comprehensive approach to management in these growing and vitally important sectors of our cultural heritage.
