Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Although we have better technology than ever for studying and preserving the past, the by-products of technology threaten to destroy monuments, art and ways of life that have survived thousands of years. This title looks at the cultural consequences of technological change and globilization, discussing the high-tech struggle to protect the Great Sphinx and the Ganges, efforts to preserve Latin within the Vatican and the digital glut inside the US National Archives. With portraits of the people involved in these critical projects, the book focuses not just on the past, but on our ideas about the past: how they are changing, and how they will have to change if our past is to have a future.
