Synopsis: Water is essential to human life, as mythology, religion, and history alike have recognized. Its availability has been a key determinant in patterns of settlement and agriculture, but its crucial role in shaping the layout and economic development of cities has not always been recognized. This structuralist history, first published in French in 1983, traces sixteen centuries of hydrographic technological change and urban development in eighteen cities of northern France.

André E. Guillerme’s focus on the uses of water clearly illustrates the interaction of military, economic, technological, political, intellectual, and symbolic factors in urbanization. He skillfully utilizes data from urban demography and draws extensively on scholarship in a wide range of fields to sketch the history of urban planning and technology and their effect on the environment. From his incisive analysis, a complex picture emerges of demographic and socioeconomic evolution.

“Guillerme’s work provides us with a fascinating insight into western history through a survey of the town-water relationship in all its multifarious implications over a wide period.”—Journal of European Economic History

“The author, an engineer rather than an historian, provides a provocative thesis concerning changes in man-made waterways in eighteen cities of the Paris basin.”—American Historical Review

Number Nine: Environmental History Series

Book Description Texas A&M University Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 312 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.Water is essential to human life, as mythology, religion, and history alike have recognized. Its availability has been a key determinant in patterns of settlement and agriculture, but its crucial role in shaping the layout and economic development of cities has not always been recognized. This structuralist history, first published in French in 1983, traces sixteen centuries of hydrographic technological change and urban development in eighteen cities of northern France. Hydrographic systems were first developed around religious sites, which developed into cities, and during the late Roman Empire technology was employed to build moats for the defense of these cities. Later the water flowing in the defensive system assumed other functions, such as driving watermills, draining swamps, facilitating public health, and, by the twelfth century, providing for the needs of urban artisans. The need dictated the use made of waterways, and the water systems in turn shaped the development of the cities. Andr Guillermes focus on the uses of water clearly illustrates the interaction of military, economic, technological, political, intellectual, and symbolic factors in urbanization. From his incisive analysis, a complex picture emerges of demographic and socioeconomic evolution and their effect on the environment. This item ships from multiple locations.
