For cultural and heritage institutions around the world, sustainability is the major challenge of the twenty-first century. In the first major work to analyze this critical issue, Barthel-Bouchier argues that programmatic commitments to sustainability arose both from direct environmental threats to tangible and intangible heritage, and from social and economic contradictions as heritage developed into a truly global organizational field. Drawing on extensive fieldwork and interviews over many years, as well as detailed coverage of primary documents and secondary literature, she examines key international organizations including UNESCO, ICOMOS, and the World Monuments Fund, and national trust organizations of Great Britain, the United States, and Australia, and many others. This wide-ranging study establishes a foundation for critical analysis and programmatic advances as heritage professionals encounter the growing challenge of sustainability.

“It can be disconcerting to find one's work subject to probing sociological analysis, but Barthel-Bouchier brings just the right balance of outside perspective and inside knowledge to the job. The result is a fascinating analysis of how heritage agencies, from the local to the global, are grappling with climate change, rising sea levels, desertification, alternative energy, mass tourism, and conflicting definitions of human rights. Anyone who’s in the heritage field, or who takes the challenge of sustainability seriously, should read this book. ”
