Book News Annotation:

In this generously illustrated book, heritage preservationist Kaufman lays out his vision of the preservation field, especially in terms of where the next generation of preservationists can take it. In essays that explore the intersections between place, race, story, and historic preservation, he argues for a broad definition of preservation that includes intangible elements (such as the stories that people connect to a place) as well as the more commonly accepted physical elements (such as buildings and architecture). Emphasizing the ways in which preservation issues are connected to race, diversity, and social justice, Kaufman looks at preservation trends across time and at issues involving specific sites. By laying out a multicultural and multiracial vision for the future of preservation, this book should stimulate discussion among people involved in the preservation field and among the general public.

Synopsis:

In Place, Race, and Story, author Ned Kaufman has collected his own essays dedicated to the proposition of giving the next generation of preservationists not only a foundational knowledge of the field of study, but more ideas on where they can take it. Through both big-picture essays considering preservation across time, and descriptions of work on specific sites, the essays in this collection trace the themes of place, race, and story in ways that raise questions, stimulate discussion, and offer a different perspective on these common ideas.

Including unpublished essays as well as established works by the author, Place, Race, and Story provides a new outline for a progressive preservation movement ? the revitalized movement for social progress.
