Can the Past and the Future Coexist?
By Matthew E. Brown
This article appeared in the Winter 2004 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

New ideologies and economic pressures are intensifying conflicts over how best to care for environmental resources and cultural artifacts, explains Alexander Stille in The Future of the Past. Whether describing archeological research in central China or endangered-species protection in Madagascar, Stille vividly illustrates how clashing beliefs about the meaning of the past, what constitutes progress, and the proper role of the marketplace are affecting the control of mankind’s inheritance.
