The Asian and Indian diaspora is a rich repository of cultural landscapes with its diverse races, culture, ideologies and settlement patterns set across a wide range of geographical settings. The Ministry of Culture, India defines Indian Cultural Landscape as ‘a living, dynamic manifestation of the harmonious co-existence of cultural ideologies with its natural environment and setting.’ However, the full potential of cultural landscapes in India and Asia remains largely unexplored presently. This book on cultural landscapes in Asia is first of its kind, with a special focus on the Indian context to examine landscape linkages across national boundaries and to understand the synergy between nature and culture within and beyond the framework of UNESCO Operational Guidelines for World Heritage. The book covers cultural landscape attributes and values in various manifestations and at multiple scales – local, national, regional and global. It also attempts to identify typologies of cultural landscapes in Asia and presents the negotiations between nature, culture and community with respect to the management of these sites thus focusing on new directions in the conservation of nature and culture. It is one of the first publications on Indian cultural landscapes looking at typologies. documentation, protection and management of this category of heritage. Printed Pages: 212 with 140 colour and b/w illustrations.
