this ground-breaking international history of the garden as art form remains the most ambitious and rewarding work of its kind. Beginning with the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, and Rome, this book skillfully uncovers the evidence of gardening through the art, history, and literature of these early sites of culture, as well as later findings of archaeology. It then takes readers farther afield into the later civilizations of Islam and Mughal India, reveals the important contributions of Italy and France, China, and Japan, lingers in the incomparable gardens of England, and finally transports readers to the New World.
