"Historic cities must confront tremendous changes day-to-day. There is nothing comparable in the published literature to this new, inspiring and instructive book on urban conservation of historic cities, an anthology of most important historical and modern texts on all relevant subjects and topics of historic towns and settlememts. This book is useful and enriching for a wide-range of professionals, including architects, landscape architects, urban planners, archaeologists, anthropologists, conservationists, historians, teachers, building administrators and students."
—Dr.-Ing. Claus-Peter Echter, President at ISC CIVVIH ICOMOS (International Scientific Committee on Historic Towns and Villages)

"This collection of international writings on urban history and conservation is an invaluable resource for students, teachers, professionals, activists—indeed, anyone interested in the care and future prospects of our historic cities and landscapes. The compilation in a single volume of such a wide-ranging (both temporally and geographically) selection of voices and issues, both familiar and unfamiliar, makes the book an indispensable companion to the urbanist or preservationist. Readers will appreciate the sensible thematic format, informative editorial comments, and illustrations as much as the historic texts themselves. "
—Steven W. Semes, Professor of Architecture, University of Notre Dame

“I am thrilled to be included in the collection, Historic Cities: Issues in Urban Conservation, recently published by the Getty Conservation Institute. The book is a fantastic introduction to the evolution of the management of historic cities and includes both established contributors as well as lesser-known, but no less valuable contributors… Text selection is not always easy but the editors have made excellent choices taking into consideration a variety of factors…I am sure it will become an attractive resource to seasoned experts, and as well as those new who are new to the field.”
—Jukka Jokilehto, Special Advisor to the Director General of ICCROM
