Summary Conservation and the City is a study of conservation and change throughout the built environment - city centres, suburbs and even villages - and how the activities of conservation interact with the planning system. Using detailed case studies from the UK and the Westernised world, Larkham examines some of the key social, economic and psychological ideas which support conservation, as well as studying the urban landscape and the agents of change. Conservation and the City seeks to understand urban conservation, and in doing so presents possible solutions for managing change in the built environment of the future
