Today's archaeologists and law practitioners must have an increased awareness of legal issues pertaining to historic preservation and cultural resource management (CRM). Archaeological sites and finds are non-renewable resources inciting numerous legal debates based upon claims of legitimacy and ownership. In this edited volume of original articles, law professionals and legal scholars offer their perspectives on current debates for the heritage community, giving multiple viewpoints and injecting historical depth to contemporary legal controversies. The contributions focus on three key issues: Enforcement and Preservation; International Issues; and Repatriation―in which insights are given on topics such as underwater cultural heritage, global trade and export, illegal trafficking of antiquities, domestic law enforcement, and indigenous people's legal rights. Famous cases such as the Elgin Marbles and the Kennewick Man, as well as laws such as NAGPRA and McClain doctrine are discussed at length. This book will be an indispensable resource to CRM practitioners, cultural property attorneys, archaeologists, community heritage groups, tribes, museums and galleries, or anyone interested in the preservation of American and global cultural heritage.

Ms. Forsyth has written on the topic of the illicit trade in classical antiquities and presented a paper on the subject at the Fifth World Archaeological Congress.

Review:

The premises [of this book] are that cultural property is property, is valued, and is owned. Who the owners are becomes the legal question of interest...An implicit concern with and advocacy for the physical preservation of cultural property underlies much of the discussion, as well as the need to balance the interests of stakeholders in the ownership debates. Of interest to anyone involved in heritage resource protection. (S.R. Martin, Michigan Technological University CHOICE, October 2004)

In Legal Perspectives, Jennifer Richman and Marion Forsyth have corralled an extraordinarily diversified collection of papers, prepared by an equally diversified cast of legal experts and working archaeologists. Written at a time when issues of cultural heritage are capturing headlines around the globe, these powerful presentations address legalistic nuance and offer broader perspectives on numerous case studies (both historical and contemporary). Readers will find plenty of room for disagreement,dialogue, and debate. This benchmark publication defines the field, and should be required reading for everyone involved with cultural heritage resources... (David Hurst Thomas)
