I am happy to announce the publication of the new book Heritage Politics in China: The Power of the Past by Yujie Zhu (ANU) and Christina Maags (Sheffield). Thank you for your attention.
Heritage Politics in China: The Power of the Past studies the impact of heritage policies and discourses on the Chinese state and Chinese society. It sheds light on the way Chinese heritage policies have transformed the narratives and cultural practices of the past to serve the interests of the present.
This very timely book opens doors to heritage making as a political process. With a focus on China and local political processes, it will reorient and illuminate the way in which heritage theorists regard the value of heritage. Prof Michael Rowlands. University College London
