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
Public Historian
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.

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.

The author, Tom King, is the best thinker about CRM in the United States.

Tom King has played a unique role in CRM as one of the architects of the original Section 106 regulations and the discipline’s most articulate explicator and critic. This purportedly final edition has updated regulatory detail, recent examples, and sharpened critique. This book is essential reading for those interested in historic preservation including CRM practitioners and civil servants.One hopes that the latter might actually heed King’s well-reasoned rejoinders for the critical need to reform the regulation and management of our nation’s cultural resources.
Ned Kaufman
Each of King’s books is a must read, and Cultural Resource Laws and Practice most of all. In it, King transforms the complexities of heritage management into a veritable page-turner. Like the first edition, this fourth is a definitive how-to guide. But it’s also a critique, based on decades of experience. Readers will value Cultural Resource Laws and Practice as much for King’s insights on changing the system as for his instructions on working it.

King's is still the gold-standard reference to CRM and historic preservation.
Historical Archaeology - Thomas A. Crist
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.
Lithic Technology - Tom Green
Praise for the first edition:
The author, Tom King, is the best thinker about CRM in the United States.
Hester Davis
This third edition is certainly no mere reprint. Dr. King has rearranged some of the discussion to make the sequence of information more logical; he has tweaked the language in places so that it is more understandable; and, of course, he has brought up to date all changes in laws and regulations and examined the consequences of these changes. This is still the best book on how historic preservation in the U.S. works, and how Dr. King, one of the most experienced practitioners in the business, thinks it might work better.
Larry Canter
This informative book deals comprehensively with cultural resource laws and regulations as well as professional practice and guidelines. King shows how these various elements of cultural resource policy conform to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This third edition also incorporates relevant information regarding social impact assessment, Native American cultures, environmental justice, collaborative participation, and cultural resource management plans. Cultural Resource Laws and Practice is essential reading for students interested in heritage resource management and for professionals who work as consultants within the NEPA process.
