Four Books by Thomas F. King: A Joint Review Introduced

Lawrence F. Van Horn

In this, the Fall 2004 issue, the High Plains Applied Anthropologist carries on the multi-review format begun with the Fall 2003 issue and continued in the Spring 2004 issue. This time, instead of one book reviewed by three reviewers followed by the author’s commentary, each of four reviewers reviews one of the same author’s books. Cultural Resource Laws and Practice: An Introductory Guide, Federal Planning and Historic Places: The Section 106 Process, Thinking About Cultural Resource Management: Essays from the Edge, and Places That Count: Traditional Cultural Properties in Cultural Resource Management are reviewed respectively by Eric Petersen, Darby Stapp, Fred York, and Jacilee Wray. Including me as the introducer, we are all federal employees or federal contractors involved in land management. That is entirely appropriate for at least three reasons. First, cultural resource management and historic preservation are the common themes of the four books. Second, the federal government, through various laws and policies, has been a pioneer in the preservation of cultural resources. Third, Tom King, the author (although no longer with the federal government but now in independent consulting and teaching practice), has been and remains an outstanding pioneer in philosophizing about cultural resources and their management for protection and preservation.
