ICAHM is delighted to announce its new book series, which is being published by
Springer Press. Books will appear simultaneously in print in soft cover and on-line within
8-12 weeks of final manuscript receipt.
Volumes will be 50-125 typeset pages (20,000 to 45,000 words), including images and
references. The series is ideal for scholars whose manuscript is too long for an article yet
too brief for a full-length book. We welcome single authored, co-authored, or edited
submissions. Each volume is peer-reviewed.
The series will address critical contemporary problems and illustrate exemplary work
in archaeological heritage management in countries around the globe. The series will take a
broad view of the concepts of archaeology, heritage, and management in accordance with
ICAHM’s mandate itself. Contributing authors will see archaeological heritage
management as a dynamic interface between professional practice, scholary investigation,
and the public sphere. We seek manuscripts that are grounded, practical, applied,
theoretically engaged, and problem-solving. The book series will be concerned with:
• archaeological sites (from caves to buildings to historic districts to entire landscapes)
ranging in age from the most ancient human history through the industrial era
• heritage, understood as not just the sites themselves but also stakeholders who
inevitably constitute diverse and multiscalar sectors of society (such as peasant
farmers, local townspeople, religious organizations, tourism companies, national
developers, transnational investors, international agencies)
• management that transcends mere adherence to formulaic conventions, instead
comprising site protection and sustainability enabled through the democratic use of
heritage, including cultural tourism
• site museums, interpretative centers, and museum exhibitions as these relate to the
promotion of an ethos of site stewardship and public interpretation.
