Overview

Historic preservation consultant King provides an introduction to U.S. federal law and regulation governing practitioners of cultural resources management—which, in this setting, broadly encompasses the preservation of historical, archaeological, environmental, and even social institutional things of cultural value—in a textbook designed for use in historic preservation, environmental studies, social impact assessment, and cultural resources management academic courses. He describes the law of, and prescribed practices stemming from, the National Environmental Policy Act, Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, and other cultural resource authorities. He then explains how to conduct impact assessments and how to formulate cultural resource management plans. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
