Asian activists, organizers, critics, teachers, artists, and entrepreneurs have become passionately involved in protecting Asia’s heritage. In this book, twelve principal authors from eleven of the region’s countries present their experience of what has been done in the past and their ideas on what should be done in the future. Chapters cover Siam’s temples, Korean religious murals, Beijing’s neighborhoods, Lao textiles, Javanese ruins, Cambodian dance, old Bangkok and George Town, Philippine creative arts, Calcutta’s architecture, China’s salt industry, and the Burmese cat. This book records the start of a conversation that promises to transform the protection of Asia’s heritage.
