Summary
"Preservation has traditionally focused on saving prominent buildings of historical or architectural significance. Preserving cultural landscapes--the combined fabric of the natural and man-made environments--is a relatively new and often misunderstood idea among preservationists, but it is of increasing importance. The essays collected in this volume--case studies that include the Little Tokyo neighborhood in Los Angeles, the Cross Bronx Expressway, and a rural island in Puget Sound--underscore how this approach can be fruitfully applied. Together, they make clear that a cultural landscape perspective can be an essential underpinning for all historic preservation projects"--Provided by publisher
