Understanding how coastal communities around the world have adapted to these challenging environments can help identify not only the strategies to better prepare our vulnerable cities, but also the attitudes that are most effective in producing constructive solutions. "Protecting Historic Coastal Cities" presents an overview of how historic communities in coastal environments understand and confront the unique challenges they face. In "Protecting Historic Coastal Cities," the authors assert that building resilient coastal communities requires a profound understanding of this relationship to confront the extreme conditions of living and working in coastal areas around the world."@en ;
