Historic Preservation An Introduction to Its History, Principles, and Practice by Norman Tyler, Ted J. Ligibel, Ilene R. Tyler

This is the only book to cover the gamut of preservation issues in layman's language: the philosophy and history of the movement, the role of government, the documentation and designation of historic properties, sensitive architectural designs and planning, preservation technology, and heritage tourism, plus a survey of architectural styles. It is an ideal introduction to the field for students, historians, preservationists, property owners, local officials, and community leaders. Updated throughout, this revised edition addresses new subjects, including heritage tourism and partnering with the environmental community.


...an impressive textbook...As someone who teaches historic preservation theory to architects, I am looking forward to using Historic Preservation as one of my textbooks next year. I will also recommend this book to anyone interested in historic preservation. Local government officials, historic district commissioners and even owners of historic buildings can all benefit from reading this book. -- Paul Hardin Kapp - Bulletin of the Illinois Geographical Society [D]eserves a place in the home of anyone interested in the activities of preservation....If we could have only one book on the practice of historic preservation, this may well be that book. -- Alabama Trust for Historic Preservation [T]he classic textbook for the field. -- Old Mill News This book is recommended to students, planners, and citizens interested in the preservation and protection of our local, regional, and national patrimony. -- Colonial Latin American Historical Review [A]n essential resource that should be in the library of any preservationist. -- Tim Cannan, President - PreservationDirectory.com [I]ndispensable....the authors and the book's editorial advisors accomplish what no others have to date. This is the intellectually accessible basic textbook-that Preservation 101 we all have been seeking. It is useful as a basic reader in the undergraduate classroom, serves as a quick reference for graduate students...and provides information for professionals in foreign countries on how preservation is practiced in the United States. It can also be dipped into as needed by preservation volunteers who, after all, form the backbone of American preservation on a community level. -- Preservation Education & Research [A] thorough introduction to the sometimes complicated subject of historic preservation....clear and concise...Current with today's issues. -- The New England Antiques Journal Historic Preservation is a book that, in being named after its subject, invites high expectations and meets them all. -- Civil Engineering Libraries strong in architecture and historic preservation will find the second updated edition of Historic Preservation a winner. -- The Midwest Book Review
