Reinventing Eden: The Fate of Nature in Western Culture

Capa
Psychology Press, 2004 - 308 páginas
This work shows how the drive to conquer nature, explore and settle the globe, springs from a utopian pastoral impulse throughout Western history. It traces the idea of rebuilding the primeval garden from its origins to its latest incarnations in shopping malls, theme parks and gated communities.
