Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Examines gardens as works of art in order to challenge the assertions of contemporary aesthetic theory that art can only be studied as part of a particular historical and cultural context, that art has no relation to the survival of people, and that all signifying systems are like language. Paper edition (unseen), $16.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
