Inhaltsangabe: In 1972 UNESCO created the World Heritage Foundation, a program to identify and protect "world heritage sites" -irreplaceable environments ranging from natural areas to whole urban centers. To date over 600 such sites have been designated for protection on four continents, including places of worship, monuments, living settlements, and historic complexes, which taken together constitute an ideal tour of the history, cultures and creative expressions of humanity.
That tour begins here, in the first of the three-volume UNESCO World Heritage series: 46 living and archeological built environments from continuously-occupied cities such as Crakow and old Havana to archeological treasures such as Macchu Picchu (Peru) and Angkor Wat (Cambodia); Petra (Jordan); the Imperial Forums (Italy); the Casbah of Algiers; Teotihuacan (Mexico)-and discoveries that make a full spectrum of world cultures.
Each site is presented up close with color reproductions and a rich explanatory text. The volume is completed by the charter map of the World Heritage Foundation and includes UNESCO's standards for designation. With this particularly rich selection of images, places distant in time and space can be seen as connected in a singular and fascinating way: the true heritage of every nation and every individual.
Inhaltsangabe: Established in 1972, the World Heritage Committee is devoted to protecting the world's cultural and natural heritage and now includes a list of 730 sites which have been given the status of World Heritage Site. This large volume is part of a collaborative project between UNESCO and Skira Editore to publish information on these sites and begins with a selection of 46 archaeological sites or areas from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. Descriptions and historical information are placed alongside stunning colour photographs of areas such as the Vatican City, Stonehenge, Angkor, Cracow, Petra, Damascus, Thebes, Copan, Machu Picchu and Nasca. A list of all the archaeological sites and urban areas protected by UNESCO are listed at the back. The next two volumes will focus on individual monumental complexes and environmental areas under threat.
