9789004231160: Investing in the Early Modern Built Environment: Europeans, Asians, Settlers and Indigenous Societies (European Expansion and Indigenous Response)

Today the bulk of tangible wealth around the globe resides in buildings and physical infrastructure rather than moveable goods. This situation was not always the case. Investing in the Early Modern Built Environment represents the first attempt to delve into the period's enhanced architectural investment--its successes, its failures, and the conflicts it provoked. Not just cultural but clear economic and environmental reasons existed for a rejection of the new architectural agenda. Whatever its efficacy or flaws, it ultimately served as a model worldwide for cityscapes and housing well into the twentieth century. Contributors include Jordan Sand, Robin Pearson, John Broad, Kiyoko Yamaguchi, Steven W. Hackel, Susan E. Hough, Johnathan Farris, Matthew Mulcahy, Charles Walker, Emma Hart, Chad Anderson, Ross H. Cordy, Grace Karskens, and Carole Shammas.

About the Author:

Carole Shammas holds the John R. Hubbard Chair in History Emerita at the University of Southern California. She has written books and numerous articles on the history of consumption, households, and the built environment in the Atlantic world.

Review:

It is gratifying to see how the promises of scholarship are sometimes fulfilled. [...] Carol Shammas' new edited volume fulfils such a promise [...]. This is a dense collection, rich in content and theoretical interest. While it is framed primarely for a dedicated readership in architectural history, it has a far wider significance. The eassays work effectively in providing intersecting views of a transformation of the built landscape that, while incomplete and fractured in its impact, constitutet an important part of what we understand of the transition of modernity. Anne Murphy, Itinerario, Vol. 38, No. 1 (2014), pp. 165-168.
