Overview

Section 106. A critical section of an obscure law, the National Preservation Act. It has saved thousands of historic sites, archeological sites, buildings, and neighborhoods across the country from destruction by Federal projects. And it has let even more be destroyed, or damaged, or somehow changed. It is the major legal basis for a multi-million dollar 'cultural resource management' industry that provides employment to thousands of archeologists, historians, and architectural historians. It is interpreted in a wide variety of ways by judges, lawyers, Federal agency officials, State and Tribal Historic Preservation Officers, contractors, and academics. But what does it say, and how does the regulatory process it created actually work? In this book, Tom King de-mythologizes Section 106, explaining its origins, its rationale, and the procedures that must be followed in carrying out its terms. Available just months after the latest revision of section 106, this book builds on King's best-selling work, Cultural Resource Laws and Practice: an Introductory Guide (AltaMira Press 1998). It is indispensable for federal, state, tribal, legal, academic, and citizen practitioners in the United States. King's engaging and witty prose turns a tangle of complicated regulation into a readable and engaging guide. ** CLICK 'Sample Readings' below to view the most current addendum to this book.

Editorial Reviews

Illinois Archaeology
Unique and valuable... the book for all who deal with Section 106 regulations to read and reread.
— Thomas E. Emerson, (Illinois Transportation Archaeology Research Program, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
American Antiquity
Thomas F. King, a long-standing leader in the ever-growing and transforming field of Cultural Resource Management (CRM), has done a great service to the historic preservation community by writing this book.... Any archaeologist who works in CRM or who is responsible for teaching students about the realities of practicing archaeology in the U.S. today should own this book. AltaMira Press should be congratulated for publishing books like this one in its Heritage Resource Management Series and filling a publication void.
— Michael D. Petraglia
Journal Of The Society For Industrial Archaeology
[King's] analogy between chronic disease and regulatory procedures is funny as well as sharp-edged .... The goal of AltaMira's Heritage series includes producing 'practical guides designed to help those who work in cultural resource management, environmental management, heritage preservation, and related subjects.' This goal has been met by King's contribution.
— Susan R. Martin
Nebraska History
[Tom King] very nearly manages to bring what can be a complicated and arcane process into lay terms. Laced with humor, thought-provoking (and sometimes controversial) prose, and simplified examples, Federal Planning and Historic Places should assist anyone who wishes to learn about the 106 process.
— Bill Callahan, State Historic Preservation Office, NSHS
High Plains Applied Anthropologist
What makes this book especially valuable is the author. Thomas F. King has been involved in the Section 106 process since its inception, has taught section 106 classes for years, and has probably thought more about the regulation's evolution than any other person alive.
— Darby C. Strapp

Journal Of The West, Fall 2002, Vol 41.4 - J. Christopher Schnell
If Historical Preservation Departments across the country realize the importance of King's work, it maybe come the essential supplement to those who would assure employment to thousands of archaeologists, historians, and preservationists. And, if this happens, it may turn the tide in preserving what is important to many Americans. This is a valuable work.
Northeast Historical Archaeology, Vol 29, 2000 - Edward L. Bell
I would recommend King's book to students in academic programs that serve to train the next generation of historic preservation professionals.... Those of us who are professionally involved with historic preservation planning in the United States (and her trust territories that are also subject to the process) will find many, many sections of King's book to be enlightening, provocative, and interesting—and funny to boot! .... King's book, as I have said,is wonderfully insightful.
