Editorial Reviews

Booknews
While this book is written largely from the perspectives of those involved with public parks in the UK, the renaissance in the creation and conservation of parks is an international phenomenon. In their respective forewords, a British urban planning official and a government garden and landscape adviser discuss the new priorities recognizing the role of parks in urban livability. Eleven essays elaborate on their social and historical value. Mostly b&w illustrations detail shrubbery planting (1830-1900), late 20th century bedding practice, park structures, water features, and recreation. Co-published with the Landscape Design Trust and the Garden History Society. Distributed by Routledge. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
