The aim of the Handbook is to strike a balance between theory and practice, which we see as inseparable, while also seeking to achieve a geographical spread, disciplinary diversity and perspectives, and a mix of authors from academic, practitioner, management, and community backgrounds.
Cultural landscapes, which in the field of heritage studies and practice relates to caring for and safeguarding heritage landscapes, is a concept embedded in contemporary conservation. Heritage conservation has shifted from an historical focus on buildings, city centres, and archaeological sites to encompass progressively more diverse forms of heritage and increasingly larger geographic areas, embracing both rural and urban landscapes. While the origin of the idea of cultural landscapes can be traced to the late-19th century Euro-American scholarship, it came to global attention after 1992 following its adoption as a category of ?site? by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee. Today, cultural landscape practice has become increasingly complex given the expansion of the values and meanings of heritage, the influence of environmental challenges such as human induced climate change, technological advancements, and the need to better understand and interpret human connections to place and landscapes.
The aim of this handbook is to strike a balance between theory and practice, which we see as inseparable, while also seeking to achieve a geographical spread, disciplinary diversity and perspectives, and a mix of authors from academic, practitioner, management, and community backgrounds.
"Cultural landscapes are complex systems that have received much attention ? both as heritage places and as the basis for the daily life of communities. However, understanding and managing their complexity, including space-time relations, remains a challenge. This outstanding publication provides an incredible resource that includes both theoretical and practical aspects explored from global, regional, and local perspectives. Theory, practice, a protection and management cycle, and case studies are presented by leading experts and practitioners in the field of cultural landscapes. Who can ask for more? The thematic sections offer a rich diversity of approaches and illustrate methods and instruments that contribute to the understanding and application of the subject. This book is an essential resource for those working to respond to global challenges such as sustainability, climate change, and human rights, as well as 'bridging the divide' between natural and cultural heritage. The book contributes to 'learning-by-doing' and people-centred approaches to understanding, caring for, and safeguarding those many special heritage landscapes loved by different communities and cultural groups."

"With the Routledge Handbook of Cultural Landscape Practice, Steve Brown and Cari Goetcheus provide scholars and practitioners an excellent tool with fundamental knowledge and methodological guidance based on collective reflection on theory, policy, and practice. Drawing on a rich diversity of case studies and contributions by renowned members of the international cultural landscapes community, this book synthesises almost thirty years of evolution in the application of this groundbreaking concept in the heritage field since its inclusion as a World Heritage category."

"The literature in the conservation field around cultural landscapes has been accelerating over the last decade, as have the jurisdictions adopting the concept for application. As a result, sites now being named ?cultural landscapes?, from the local to the global, have proliferated. The arrival of this Routledge Handbook of Cultural Landscape Practice is thus timely. It will fast become an invaluable resource for educators, practitioners, site managers, or citizens. The handbook, like cultural landscapes, approaches the subject with a multiplicity of voices and demonstrates the evolution of the concept over time. It also demonstrates why it has persisted despite its ambiguities and challenges in application. The essays come from experts from around the world and range from the applied to the theoretical. In doing so, this compilation covers an impressive spectrum of understanding, approaches and practice. As such this Routledge Handbook will become a classic in the conservation field."
