DescriptionAlthough major advances have been made in recent years in the physical science and technology of restoration, we think there is an equally important human side to restoration that has received little attention from researchers and practitioners. This journal provides a good case in point. Even though its editor, William Jordan III, is a principal spokesperson for the human side of restoration and frequently begins a journal issue with a moving editorial dealing with this topic, contributed articles from the social sciences and humanities are still few and far between. Jordan himself recognizes this imbalance, and has on occasion pointed out both the need for more research in this area and the value of a kind of "affirmative" action on the part of the journal to solicit accounts of this research.
