From massive nuclear test sites to the more subtle material realities of everyday life, the influence of the Cold War on modern culture has been profound and global. Fearsome Legacies unites innovative work on the interpretation and management of Cold War heritage from fields including archaeology, history, art and architecture, and cultural studies. Contributors understand material culture in its broadest sense, examining objects in outer space, domestic space, landscapes, and artistic spaces. They tackle interpretive challenges and controversies, including in museum exhibits, heritage sites, archaeological sites, and other historic and public venues. With over 150 color photos and illustrations, including a photographic essay, readers can feel the profound visual impact of this material culture.

Heritage In Action

In this textbook we see heritage in action in indigenous and vernacular communities, in urban development and regeneration schemes, in expressions of community, in acts of nostalgia and memorialization and counteracts of forgetting, in museums and other spaces of representation, in tourism, in the offices of those making public policy, and in the politics of identity and claims toward cultural property. Whether renowned or local, tangible or intangible, the entire heritage enterprise, at whatever scale, is by now inextricably embedded in “value”. The global context requires a sanguine approach to heritage in which the so-called critical stance is not just theorized in a rarefied sphere of scholarly lexical gymnastics, but practically engaged and seen to be doing things in the world.

The massive intentional destruction of cultural heritage during the 1992-1995 Bosnian War targeting a historically diverse identity provoked global condemnation and became a seminal marker in the discourse on cultural heritage. It prompted an urgent reassessment of how cultural property could be protected in times of conflict and led to a more definitive recognition in international humanitarian law that destruction of a people's cultural heritage is an aspect of genocide. Yet surprisingly little has been published on the subject. This wide-ranging book provides the first comprehensive overview and critical analysis of the destruction of Bosnia-Herzegovina's cultural heritage and its far-reaching impact. Scrutinizing the responses of the international community during the war (including bodies like UNESCO and the Council of Europe), the volume also analyses how, after the conflict ended, external agendas impinged on heritage reconstruction to the detriment of the broader peace process and refugee return. It assesses implementation of Annex 8 of the Dayton Peace Agreement, a unique attempt to address the devastation to Bosnia's cultural heritage, and examines the treatment of war crimes involving cultural property at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). With numerous case studies and plentiful illustrations, this important volume considers questions which have moved to the foreground with the inclusion of cultural heritage preservation in discussions of the right to culture in human rights discourse and as a vital element of post-conflict and development aid.

DIVERSE VISIONS BOOK ONE: subtitle HERITAGE INTRODUCTION In the reservoir of my mind, the concept of heritage is the origin, or the roots, of an antique distant setup denoting my source of inspiration. In this subtitle so many factors that urged me to share these deeply rooted human similitudes, differences, weaknesses, challenges, in joy, love, power, recognition, winning, just to loose or keep, the success nurtured to last. In heritage, exposed are diverse cultures, interwoven into a nation, during the eighteen years I went round as a school teacher, in eight different schools in my country, not only to teach but also learn a lot from my own people. I still smell the soaked earth after the first rains fell, following a scorching dry season; somewhere in the west coast of Africa, mother land dearest. Of course including other peoples cultures and believes from the sub region and beyond. Heritage ranges, from my place of birth, with my late mother and father, who were peasant farmers. In the midst of which I was one of the privileged few, to attend school and get lettered. It is a kind of paying homage to what, where I come from, made of me. It is trying to put a universal meaning to an otherwise rich, hidden, culture, from Africa. What my nation and people endure, in their day to day lives. All thats narrated here is a combination of effects, which influenced me to paint a poetic picture to it all. Each poem decodes and expresses a particular happening, incident and event that directly or indirectly affected me or those I lived with. In short Heritage makes you feel, be part of the life of a people, trying to strive with almost nothing in their hands to survive, despite the odds. Heritage includes the eras of pre-colonial, colonial and independence of former western colonies, in Africa, a complexity, of culture conflicts, caused by, historical influences from other parts of the world. As times, people and levels of awareness keep on changing, in the world of today, some things have changed and are changing over the years, for better or for worst, and Heritage is another specter of contribution to promote a better understanding, a sensitization, without which so much will pass unnoticed, from that part of the world, narrated by a person who lived it all.
