Summary "Heritage Interpretation is an essential guide to present practice and policy concerning issues in heritage management. The UK has an international reputation for the excellence of its heritage interpretation. During the 1980s and 1990s the UK developed innovative public presentation of heritage sites in the increasingly competitive cultural tourism market. UK heritage organisations developed ideas pioneered by the US National Park Service in the 1960s and applied these to cultural heritage sites." From the bookjacket
