New Perspectives in Cultural Resource Management

Edited by: 
Francis P. McManamon

"New Perspectives in Cultural Resource Management" describes the historic developments, current challenges and future opportunities presented by contemporary Cultural Resource Management (CRM). CRM is a substantial aspect of archaeology, history, historical architecture, historical preservation and public policy in the U.S. and other countries. Chapter authors are innovators and leaders in the development and contemporary practice of CRM. Collectively, they have conducted thousands of investigations and managed programs at local, state, tribal and national levels. The chapters provide perspectives on the methods, policies, and procedures of historical and contemporary CRM. Recommendations are provided on current practices likely to be effective in the coming decades.


Francis McManamon is a research professor in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change. He has special interests and expertise in archaeological resource management, the long-term access to and preservation of archaeological data, laws and regulations related to cultural resource management and historic preservation, and public outreach and education about archaeology.
