Summary

Asian Heritage Management explores the nature and complexity of managing the cultural heritage in Asia. It analyses the intangible heritage dimensions, religious worldviews, traditional preservation practices, and the notion of cultural landscape that are crucial in understanding the cultural heritage in Asia. Critiquing the contemporary regulatory frameworks in operation and focusing on the issues of global impact on the local cultures in the region, it emphasises the need for integrated heritage management approaches that encompass the plurality of heritage conservation concerns in Asian countries.Themes are discussed from the vantage point of heritage scholars and practitioners in the South, Southeast, and East Asia. This book thus presents a distinctive Asian perspective which will be a valuable source for students and practitioners of heritage within and beyond the Asian context.
