Présentation de l'éditeur

Examining international case studies including USA, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Laurajane Smith identifies and explores the use of heritage throughout the world.

Challenging the idea that heritage value is self-evident, and that things must be preserved because they have an inherent importance, Smith forcefully demonstrates that heritage value is not inherent in physical objects or places, but rather that these objects and places are used to give tangibility to the values that underpin different communities and to assert and affirm these values.

A practically grounded accessible examination of heritage as a cultural practice, The Uses of Heritage is global in its benefit to students and field professionals alike.

A primer on heritage tourism 28 novembre 2010
Par J. Wallace - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I first used this book in my undergrad/grad course about a year ago and am using it again. This is an excellent book. My students find it hard to follow at times, but after they work at it, they get it and really appreciate the skill she has in explaining complex ideas and giving a theoretical structure to critical heritage studies. The book engages the field of heritage like no others I have read. The author seems to be able to dissect very complicated material and present their essence in a fascinating way. Where little really deep theory has existed, Smith presents a theoretical tour de force. The first three chapters present the theory part of her work, while the next four chapters give extended ethnographic examples to show how her theories work. The eighth chapter discusses indigenous politics and heritage discourse. There is a final, brief conclusion that summarizes some key points. I think one of her main strengths in showing the role of authorized heritage discourse in shaping our concepts and politics of heritage both locally and globally. In addition she clearly explains that heritage connects to people in intangible ways and that objects such as buildings and monuments are symbolic representations of intangible heritage. The writing is dense so don't expect to go through it easily in a single setting. But, it is definitely a worthwhile adventure.

High-level Investigation of "Heritage" 27 novembre 2011
Par A. Wheeler - Publié sur
Format: Broché
In non-academic use, the word "heritage" is an extremely vague word frequently invoked in tourism literature to conjure up images as diverse as American Revolutionary fife-and-drum corps (Boston), prehistoric megaliths (Stonehenge), and opulent Baroque interiors (Versailles). Heritage is somehow the magic spell that brings places, peoples, objects, and practices from the distant past "alive" in the present. Laurajane Smith examines heritage from a theoretical standpoint that seeks to explain how one word can produce so much feeling. Does heritage really even exist? Is it a static "thing" or an ongoing "process"? How does it differ from history? Who owns the past? How is heritage used as a tool of both the ruling elite and the oppressed minority? Smith then uses several ethnographic case studies to demonstrate the practical application of her theories. While I consider this an excellent part of the growing literature in heritage studies, I think it's best left for graduate programs. Students who read this book in my undergraduate World Heritage course felt lost in the academic jargon, which is not unreasonable. This book makes more sense in the context of extensive prior readings in the field. New students of heritage might want look into works by David Lowenthal, who discusses the uses and abuses of heritage in more accessible prose.
