The contributions to this book consider recent developments in the protection and care of twentieth-century buildings and examines the philosophical, methodological and practical problems associated with conserving our recent past. Part I discusses philosophy, protection and management. Part II investigates the progress that has been made in dealing with the practical issues of conserving modern buildings, with special attention given to common materials such as concrete and metal windows. A selection of international case studies provide useful examples of the problems that may be encountered.

Review:

...an entertaining and thought provoking book and an essential contribution to the evolving literature on the conservation of what will soon be known as 'last century'. As with all Donhead publications it is handsomely and strongly bound and should find a place in all conservation-minded libraries. Context Crucial for anyone involved with the care of a 20th century building. AHSS
