Mere om bogen
In presenting 25 industrial sites of national significance in the context of changing techno-economic paradigms, this book considers the development of Danish industrial landscapes and built-up environments in the period 1840-1970.
Three case studies of ports, sugar mills, and cement plants are also presented. The book concludes with two chapters that discuss perceptions and strategies for the conversion of industrial sites, and an overview is given covering the preservation of industrial heritage in Denmark, historically.
"Although Denmark is often perceived as an agricultural country, industry is a very important sector in the Danish economy, employing a large number of people and having considerable influence on Danish society and culture in general. The appreciation of industrial history, as well as the tangible and intangible remains of industry, is an important heritage."

The book might be highly recommended to industrial archaeologists and to any person interested in understanding Danish modernization. It contains a useful description of 25 locations selected by the Danish authorities because of their importance as industrial heritage monuments, but it also contains articles giving an overview of the historiography of Danish industrial history and the work of the last decades establishing public support for preserving some of the more valuable industrial heritage monuments. In addition, the reader finds articles with reflections on different strategies for preserving locations of the industrial past and articles on some selected areas with a history of special interests regarding industrial archaeology, namely Danish ports, Danish sugar beet refineries and cement plants. All articles are very informative and with excellent illustrations, written by experts drawing on bigger projects within the field.
