Cultural Resource Laws and Practice: An Introductory Guide

Portada
Rowman Altamira, 2004 - 408 páginas
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.
