The Introduction details the book’s general aims and argument. It also lays the groundwork for some of the broader theoretical themes that run through the book, namely: the relationship between law and non-law with respect to cultural heritage; the conservation paradigm under which international heritage law operates; and the basic terminology that the book uses, in its choice to refer to simply ‘heritage’, instead of ‘cultural heritage’, ‘cultural property’, ‘natural heritage’, and a working definition of ‘community’.
