Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Duke University Press has published a series, Living with the Shore, to educate the determined shore dweller; maps show what is happening on each stretch of beach, in enough detail to cover specific homesites. The books offer guidelines for buying and building at the shore. They list federal, state, and local agencies that are involved in coastal development, as well as give up-to-date information on laws that regulate land use.”—Forbes Magazine
