In this fourth edition of the CRM classic, Thomas F. King shares his expertise in dealing with laws regulating the use of cultural resources. With wry insight, he explains the various federal, state, and local laws governing the protection of resources, how they have been interpreted, how they operate in practice, and even how they are sometimes in contradiction with each other. He provides helpful advice on how to ensure regulatory compliance in dealing with archaeological sites, historic buildings, urban districts, sacred sites and objects, shipwrecks, and archives. King also offers careful guidance through the confusing array of federal, state, and tribal offices concerned with CRM. Featuring updated analysis and treatments of key topics, this new edition is a must-have for archaeologists and students, historic preservationists, tribal governments, and others working with cultural resources.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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. -- Steve Black, Texas State University
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. -- Ned Kaufman, Pratt Institute and Kaufman Heritage Conservation
