Heritopia: World Heritage and Modernity

Author(s): Jes Wienberg

No Category

Herbitopia investigates the meanings of the past in the present, focusing on Abu Simbel in Egypt and other World Heritage sites. This book explores and resolves a number of paradoxes: the past is impossible to preserve for eternity, all preservation implies change, preservation of one site normally means destruction of others, threats are important in the creation of heritage, but at the same time heritage may become a thread and threats can become heritage. This will appeal to students and professionals in heritage studies and related subjects such as archaeology, history, ethnology and museology.
