9780415950077: The Making of the American Landscape

The only compact yet comprehensive survey of environmental and cultural forces that have shaped the visual character and geographical diversity of the settled American landscape. The book examines the large-scale historical influences that have molded the varied human adaptation of the continent’s physical topography to its needs over more than 500 years. It presents a synoptic view of myriad historical processes working together or in conflict, and illustrates them through their survival in or disappearance from the everyday landscapes of today.

About the Author:

Michael Conzen is Professor of Geography at the University of Chicago

Review:

'Michael Conzen has re-assembled a superb line up of authors renowned for their capacity to see detail and interpret the big picture. Chapters have been updated, especially through an expanded array of historical and contemporary views of landscapes, and several new authors make this an even more compelling text." – Deryck Holdsworth, Pennsylvania State University

"Since its publication in 1990, The Making of the American Landscape has remained the best single-volume introduction to the country's cultural landscape mosaic." –Chris Wilson, University of New Mexico, USA

"The Making of the American Landscape is, simply stated, an amazing book. It should be required reading for anyone interested in the evolution of landscape. It is also a fine text to be used in classes which focus on historical geography or landscape studies more broadly....There is not a single chapter that this reviewer found disappointing or uninteresting." – Dawn S. Bowen, Department of Geography, University of Mary Washington
