Urban heritage of Asia and India is a very significant segment that has largely remained unaddressed for a long time. Recent recognition of Asian and Indian cities as living heritage in UN policies is a welcome change. This volume provides an overview of UN approach to Asia's urban heritage along with a wide perspective of national and regional approaches to urban conservation in a range of Asian countries. More specifically, it evaluates the recent focus on culture and development in Indian cities through national level schemes. The volume also outlines that while safeguarding of urban heritage as part of larger international and national agendas is critical; one also needs to look at the local approaches at ground level that finally determine the success of urban regeneration of historic areas. The contributors to this edited volume include a wide range of international and national experts specialising in heritage conservation and urban renewal in Asia, along with researchers focusing on historic cities. It is a useful reference for all practitioners and academicians working in the field of urban regeneration in Asia. Printed Pages: 186.
