  • Back to the Garden by James H. S. McGregor - Yale University Press
    that presumed a largely harmonious working relationship with Nature Traditional agriculture in the ancient Mediterranean mimicked the key traits of naturally occurring ecosystems It was diverse complex self regulating and resilient This relationship effectively came to an end in the late eighteenth century when nature was steadily equated with the untamed landscape devoid of human intervention In the early part of the century the human world the agricultural realm and the province of uncultivated nature were one continuous field with no internal boundaries By century s end however key writers had created a sharp divide within this continuum and separated the agricultural world from the world of nature This abrupt and dramatic change of sensibility upended ecological understanding and had enormous consequences consequences with which we are still struggling In Back to the Garden James H S McGregor argues that the environmental crisis the world faces today is a result of Western society s abandonment of the First Nature principle of the harmonious interrelationship of human communities and the natural world This essential work offers a new understanding of environmental accountability while proposing that recovering the original vision of ourselves not as antagonists of nature but as cultivators of a biological world to which we innately belong is possible through proven techniques of the past Much has been lost the landscape has been degraded and traditional knowledge has died away But there is still much that can be recovered studied and reimagined James H S McGregor is the author of five books on world cities He is emeritus professor of comparative literature at the University of Georgia and lives in Cambridge MA Back to the Garden is an ambitious challenging book that should prove indispensable to students of history literature ecology and myth Laurence Coupe THES as a manifesto about the gradual erosion of a prudent ecological ethic the book is agreeable and interesting McGregor writes nimbly and unpretentiously He can almost make you see a Tuscan villa or a Languedoc vineyard John R McNeill Environmental History A fascinating reappraisal of the ecological history of the cradle of Western traditions Its conclusions are hopeful perhaps our war with nature is less deeply rooted than we thought Bill McKibben James McGregor s work on Mediterranean deep history is an exhaustive and highly convincing presentation of the sophistication and sustainability of our old Neolithic European cultures before the disaster that civilization proved to be overwhelmed them all Gary Snyder Back to the Garden is a unique survey of the changing ecology of the Mediterranean world that places traditional farming practices at the center of environmental debates We have much to learn from the neglected farmers of earlier times In this important beautifully written book James McGregor throws a bright and persuasive light on the lessons that the past offers the present and future Brian Fagan author of The Attacking Ocean and Elixir More like this Recently viewed titles prev next Wilderness and the American mind Roderick Frazier Nash 18 99 Enlightenment s
