About the Author

Gregory A. Barton is Professor of British, Colonial and Environmental history at the University of Redlands, California.


'The central thesis of this challenging book is that imperialism and environmentalism have a shared past that many scholars, especially those on the political left, wish to deny ... I have much sympathy with this brave ... deconstruction of the sources of practical environmentalism.' Philip Stott, History Today 'This book is well researched, easy to read, extremely good value and, for landscape historians interested in the interaction of human agency and environmental history it provides a succession of interesting case studies grounded in the landscape of the New Orleans river front.'
