Mapping Chengde is a pathbreaking effort. While much has been written concerning Chinese monuments and natural landscapes, Phillippe Foret has broken new ground in re-creating the spatial and temporal dimensions of imperial landscape creation and transition. His argument is so novel that it should provoke others to examine Chinese imperial and vernacular landscapes in fresh ways.
