Review: Federal Planning and Historic Places: The Section 106 Process By Thomas F. King

Darby C. Stapp

When Federal Planning and Historic Places: The Section 106 Process by Thomas F. King first appeared in 2000, it quickly became a valuable tool for those involved in cultural resource legal compliance. Specifically, the book focuses on one of the primary compliance drivers, Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA) as amended, which requires federal agencies to consider potential impacts to important cultural resources when planning new projects. The book is recommended to federal agency officials responsible for Section 106, professionals doing the cultural resource work, and developers trying to comply with all the requirements imposed on them by various federal authorities. I also think anthropologists interested in policy-making will find value in this book as a case study of how cultural policy is created, implemented, and evolves.
