    The first publication of its kind to compile and evaluate international building preservation issues for the purpose of developing overall protective guidelines. Leading experts from ten countries have written 17 comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers divided into the following categories:

    Theory and Practice -- Building data management, standards comparisons and Italy's conservation approach are explored in 3 papers.

    Building Assemblies/Systems -- 4 papers examine cutting edge technology as it relates to architectural lighting standards, weathering and performance evaluation, and consolidant penetration of stone by minimal drilling and non-destructive methods.

    Materials -- Alternative approaches to historic building mortar restoration, wood strength compatibility, and fractured stone rejoining are presented in 6 papers.

    Structural Repairs-- 4 papers address varying structural safety issues including settlement, natural hazard risks such as earthquakes, vibration testing and retrofit techniques.

    For architectural conservators, historic preservationists, preservation academics, architects, and engineers.
