Historic Preservation in a Nutshell
West Academic Publishing 2014
Historic Preservation in a Nutshell (West Academic Publishing, 2014), co-authored by Sara Bronin and Ryan Rowberry provides the first-ever in-depth summary of historic preservation law within its local, state, tribal, federal, and international contexts. Historic Preservation is a burgeoning area of law that includes aspects of property, land use, environmental, constitutional, cultural resources, international, and Native American law. This book covers the primary federal statutes, and many facets of state statutes, dealing with the protection and preservation of historic resources. It also includes key topics like the designation process, federal agency obligations, local regulation, takings and other constitutional concerns, and real estate development issues.
Some of the topics we cover are:
- How the most enduring historic preservation laws manage to achieve protective aims while balancing a range of other values
- The four primary methods of advancing the goals of the preservation movement.
- The constitutional constraints on historic preservation laws
- The ways historic preservation laws interact with Indian tribes and how they can be used to preserve native heritage
