THE FUTURE HAS OTHER PLANS
BUY NOW

Crisis has enveloped the more than 200,000 nationally and regionally protected natural and cultural heritage sites around the world. Heritage managers – those who manage natural sites such as national parks, wilderness areas, and biosphere reserves, as well as those who manage cultural sites including historic monuments, battlefields, heritage cities, and ancient rock art sites – face an urgent need to confront this crisis, and each day that they don’t, more of our planet’s common heritage disappears. Although heritage management and implementation suffer from a lack of money, time, personnel, information, and political will, The Future Has Other Plans argues that deeper causes to current problems lurk in the discipline itself. Drawing on decades of practical experience in global heritage management and case studies from around the world, Jon Kohl and Steve McCool provide an innovative solution for conserving these valuable protected areas. Merging interdisciplinary and evolving management paradigms, the authors introduce a new kind of holistic planning approach that integrates the practice of heritage management and conservation with operational realities.

INTEPRETIVE THEME WRITER'S FIELD GUIDE
buy Now

The interpretive theme is the most important sentence an interpreter inks on paper. Despite its centrality to thematic interpretation, no single work has dedicated itself entirely to the art and craft of strong theme writing until now. The Interpretive Theme Writer's Field Guidebuilds on Sam Ham's 30-year thematic interpretation research legacy. While leaving theory to his books, this pocket companion offers writers strong theme examples, worksheets, exercises, inspirational quotes, and technique highlights. With contributions from Sam Ham, Ted Cable, Shelton Johnson, and Clark Hancock, this Field Guide is useful at the desk, in the exhibit hall, or on the trail. It recognizes that teams, even communities, create heritage themes, and introduces the Interpretive Framework methodology to facilitate community-based theme writing.

INTERPRETACION DEL PATRIMONIO CULTURAL

COMPARTIENDO EL TESORO
BUY NOW

La divulgación del patrimonio cultural, y en particular el arqueológico, es un campo relativamente nuevo. Surge de la necesidad de contar con una estrategia de conservación preventiva, en donde la propia ciudadanía sea quien asuma la corresponsabilidad en la preservación de su patrimonio. Antonieta Jiménez, pionera en este campo en México, nos entrega ahora el primer manual destinado a dotar de herramientas a los arqueólogos, historiadores y otros científicos sociales que les faciliten esta labor. Presenta de manera clara y amena una metodología para desarrollar programas de divulgación para el gran público, sin menoscabo del rigor de sus contenidos. Su metodología es útil no sólo en sitios arqueológicos e históricos, sino en museos sobre patrimonio cultural. Este es un libro que, sin despreciar la teoría, se centra más bien en su aplicación directa. Por ello será de gran utilidad tanto a investigadores experimentados que quieren divulgar sus hallazgos, como a estudiantes en formación que buscan iniciarse en este campo de trabajo, uno de los de mayor dinamismo hoy en día.
