Editorial Reviews

Review

There may be no area of landscape architectural practice today that is more actively changing or more important. The contributors to this volume have carried the banner of cultural landscape preservation forward into even deeper waters.

(Joseph Chambers Journal of the New England Garden History Society)

The authors of the nine essays... raise a host of issues relevant to landscape study... By concentrating on the ideas that underlie the modern preservation movement, the editors have contributed to the wider realm of landscape studies.

(Thomas Harvey Historical Geography)

8 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Megan Merryman on April 22, 2001
This book is well worth your time. If you have any interest in preservation and /or landscape you should read this book. It is very thought provoking and intelligently written. It poses more questions than it answers...which I believe is the intention of the editors. Because this book raises many questions and issues, I would recommend it for a book discussion club or a seminar class.
