en Limba Engleză Paperback – March 2003 – vârsta de la 22 ani
George Perkins Marsh (1801–1882) was the first to reveal the menace of environmental misuse, to explain its causes, and to prescribe reforms. David Lowenthal here offers fresh insights, from new sources, into Marsh’s career and shows his relevance today, in a book which has its roots in but wholly supersedes Lowenthal’s earlier biography George Perkins Marsh: Versatile Vermonter (1958). Marsh’s devotion to the repair of nature, to the concerns of working people, to women’s rights, and to historical stewardship resonate more than ever. His Vermont birthplace is now a national park chronicling American conservation, and the crusade he launched is now global.David Lowenthal is professor emeritus of geography at University College London. His books include The Past Is a Foreign Country, West Indian Societies, and The Heritage Crusade and the Spoils of History.

Recenzii

“This volume is not simply a reprinting of Lowenthal’s 1958 book on Marsh--it expands that work with new empirical sources, and it provides new reflections from the perspective of the century’s end. It is an extraordinary book.” Annals of the Association of American Geographers“This superbly written biography provides a brilliant insight into the life and background of one who was influential in the development of today’s environmental movement.” The Naturalist“Learned in twenty languages, a lawyer, (unsuccessful) businessman, several-term congressional representative, sometime university lecturer, lexicographer, grammarian, archaeological enthusiast, veteran diplomat, and ceaseless pursuer of sundry projects civic and scholarly, Marsh was a rare example of amateurish Yankee ingenuity transformed into disciplined, cosmopolitan intelligence.” The Journal of American History“Broad, varied, and challenging, Lowenthal’s George Perkins Marsh: Prophet of Conservation captures the genius of its subject with clarity and verve.” Agricultural History“Considerable history is included in this biography, which ranges from antebellum America, the Civil War, and Reconstruction to Turkey, the Middle East, and the story of Italian unification; Marsh witnessed them all.” Library Journal
