Renowned cultural resource management consultant Thomas F. King demystifies this web of regulations surrounding this field, providing frank, practical advice on how to ensure regulatory compliance in dealing with archaeological sites, historic buildings, urban districts, sacred sites and objects, shipwrecks, and archives. In this brief, informally written guide, he discusses the various federal laws that govern the protection of resources, how they have been interpreted, how they operate in practice, and even how they sometimes contradict each other. The author also provides helpful guidance to the wide array of federal, state, and tribal offices that are concerned with cultural resources management and the special challenges of working with each. In this new edition, King reports on changes in cultural resource laws, regulations, and executive orders in the past five years and adds material on Section 106 review, NEPA, and the 'Preserve America' executive order. King's insider's guide is an essential tool for CRM work by archaeologists, historic preservationists, environmentalists, tribal governments, agency managers, and students.

About the Author:

Thomas F. King has worked in historic preservation since the mid-1960s as an academic, a contractor, and a government official. During 1977-79 he organized historic preservation programs in the islands of Micronesia, and from 1979-88 he oversaw Section 106 review for the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation. He is the author of four AltaMira Press books on cultural resource management among his many writings on this topic and is in demand as a workshop instructor on the subject. King is also archaeologist for the Amelia Earhart Project and author of Amelia Earhart's Shoes (updated edition, 2004).

Review:

It is fortunate that one of our country's premier cultural resource practitioners has brought his thinking together in a succinct tome. It should be read by all those practicing in, or hoping to practice in, the cultural resource and historic preservation arenas. (Eric C. Petersen High Plains Applied Anthropologist)

Praise for the first edition: Public historians who work in CRM will value this book as an excellent manual on CRM. Its presentation is logically organized, thorough-going on the most useful topics, and easy to understand....A valuable reference work..... (Beverly E.Bastian Public Historian)

Praise for the first edition: If you want to get some idea about what the laws and regs say, what they are supposed to mean, and how to Manipulate the System, keep this book at ready....If I were teaching a course in cultural resource management or public archaeology, I would use this as a text. If I were in a position where I had to advise decision-makers, I would find this book constantly useful.... (Hester A. Davis Historical Archaeology)

King's is still the gold-standard reference to CRM and historic preservation. (Jason Younker)

Logically organized, appropriately referenced, and generally easy to read and understand. . . . First as a graduate student and later as a principal archaeologists at two CRM firms, I depended on King's previous publications and the first edition of Cultural Resource Laws and Practice to effectively guide me through the morass of CRM rules and regulations. Now a professor, I use the second edition to teach my students about the business of archaeology and the laws that protect our country's historic resources. Much like Thomas F. King himself, this book is a classic in the CRM firm and an indispensible asset. (Thomas A. Crist, Utica College Historical Archaeology)

Praise for the first edition: The author, Tom King, is the best thinker about CRM in the United States. (Tom Green Lithic Technology)
