MEDIA REVIEWS

An exciting and unusual approach to a perhaps undervalued aspect of history . . . [that] usefully fills a niche area of research and study. ["A Cultural History of Gardens"] provides an important and fascinating insight through thought-provoking essays and will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of the garden . . . [and] the development of human society in general. "Reference Reviews, vol. 28"

Let it be said at once: the book successfully addresses the three large questions that the general editors of the garden set ... have devised: '...why were gardens created? How were they used or visited... And how does their representation in different arts express the position and value of the garden within its culture?' "Bryn Mawr Classical Reviews""
