About the Author

Thomas F. King has worked in historic preservation since the mid-1960s as an academic, a contractor, and a government official.


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
