Preventing Looting After Armed Combat : the Way Forward for U.S. Nongovernmental Cultural Heritage Organizations
Antiquities Under Siege: Cultural Heritage Protection After the Iraq War
This book contains the first full published account of the disasters that have befallen Iraq's cultural heritage, and it analyzes why the array of laws and international conventions; the advocacy efforts of cultural heritage organizations; and the military planning and implementation of cultural protection operations all failed, and continue to fail, to prevent massive and irreversible loss. Looking forward, the book identifies new planning procedures, policy mechanisms, and implementation strategies capable of succeeding, so the mistakes of Iraq will not be replicated in other regions in crisis.
