This book explores the role of the ideology of nature in producing urban and exurban sprawl. It examines the ironies of residential development on the metropolitan fringe, where the search for "nature" brings residents deeper into the world from which they are imagining their escape-of Federal Express, technologically mediated communications, global supply chains, and the anonymity of the global marketplace-and where many of the central features of exurbia-very low-density residential land use, monster homes, and conversion of forested or rural land for housing-contribute to the very problems that the social and environmental aesthetic of exurbia attempts to avoid. The volume shows how this contradiction-to live in the green landscape, and to protect the green landscape from urbanization-gets caught up and represented in the ideology of nature, and how this ideology, in turn, constitutes and is constituted by the landscapes being urbanized.
