"Overall, the book is a valuable addition to the literature on World Heritage Sites as it provides a useful collection of global case studies from valued academics and practitioners from across the world. The focus on the relationship of the community with heritage sites is an important one to discuss and explore. The book provides interesting insights for scholars as well as practitioners and makes for a useful supplementary reading for students."
