"There is a predictable sameness creeping over the face of the North American landscape. Since the early 1970s, highways, shopping centers, residential subdivisions, and most other forms of development have taken on a remarkable similarity from coast to coast...We know that this facade of development masks an inherently diverse landscape...rooted in the varied physiographic and ecological character of the continent and this in turn reflects differences in the way the terrestrial environment functions. Does it not seem reasonable then that development and land use should also reflect these differences if they are to be responsive to the environment?" This authoritative text provides comprehensive coverage on the key methods and techniques involved in environmental planning. The third edition is extensively updated and revised to incorporate the rapid expansions taking place in this field. By focusing on landscape processes, systems, forms, and analysis, Marsh’s book has received much praise and is an excellent complement to Ian McHarg’s Design With Nature (Wiley, 1995).Review:
"Marsh (U. of British Columbia and emeritus U. of Michigan) presents the 25th anniversary edition of his textbook and guide explaining how to deal reasonably with the land in the face of expanding land use and changing technology. Most readers will be in the early stages of their career, he suggests, and he hopes to establish some basic principles they can adapt and apply for a long time." (Book News Inc, November 2010)
