Our Unprotected Heritage

Whitewashing the Destruction of Our Cultural and Natural Environment

eBook - 2009
Rate this:
Most Americans agree that our heritage--both natural and cultural--should be protected. Then why does development run rampant, aided--rather than limited--by government inaction? Tom King has been a participant in and observer of this system for decades, as a government worker, heritage consultant, and advocate for local communities. In this hard-hitting critique of the heritage-industrial complex, King points the finger at watchdogs who instead serve as advocates, unintelligible (often contradictory) regulations, disinterested government employees and power-seeking agencies, all of whom conspire.
