One of Time Magazine's Best Books of the Year


In Landscape and Memory Schama ranges over continents and centuries to reveal the psychic claims that human beings have made on nature. He tells of the Nazi cult of the primeval German forest; the play of Christian and pagan myth in Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers; and the duel between a monumental sculptor and a feminist gadfly on the slopes of Mount Rushmore. The result is a triumphant work of history, naturalism, mythology, and art.



"A work of great ambition and enormous intellectual scope...consistently provocative and revealing."--New York Times


"Extraordinary...a summary cannot convey the riches of this book. It will absorb, instruct, and fascinate."--New York Review of Books

Review: Landscape And Memory

Gebruikersrecensie  - Goodreads

I read part of this as a young undergrad many many moons ago. I've now gotten a second-hand copy through Amazon and I'm looking forward to getting into it once I'm at least through Donald Kagan on Thucydides. Volledige recensie lezen
