Kelman, Ari:

A River and Its City: The Nature of Landscape in New Orleans - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 9780520234338

[ED: Softcover], [PU: UNIV OF CALIFORNIA PR], "New Orleans' Mississippi levee, as Kelman explains in this fascinating study, is more than a pile of dirt. It is the key to unraveling the historical dialectic between a great river and an essentially amphibious city. It is also the monumental space of New Orleans' past, where dark plots and heroic dreams remain forever entangled."--Mike Davis, author of "Ecology of Fear: Los Angeles and the Imagination of Disaster "Kelman has written a pioneering environmental history of the evolving relationship between one of the nation's oldest and most exceptional cities, New Orleans, and our greatest river, the Mississippi. For New Orleans, the river offered challenges and opportunities alike, providing the lifeblood of the city's commerce and a signature symbol of its identity even as it also brought floods, disease, and death. It is a fascinating story."--William Cronon, author of "Nature's Metropolis: Chicago and the Great West "Kelman makes elegant sense of a story as tangled as the Louisiana bayous and tells his tale with a verve to rival that of New Orleans itself. A strong addition to American environmental history."--John R. McNeill, author of "Something New Under the Sun: An Environmental History of the Twentieth-Century World 308 pages - 39 b/w photographs - 9 x 6 in Versandfertig in über 4 Wochen, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot

This engaging environmental history explores the rise, fall, and rebirth of one of the nation's most important urban public landscapes, and more significantly, the role public spaces play in shaping people's relationships with the natural world. Ari Kelman focuses on the battles fought over New Orleans's waterfront, examining the link between a river and its city and tracking the conflict between public and private control of the river. He describes the impact of floods, disease, and changing technologies on New Orleans's interactions with the Mississippi. Considering how the city grew distant-culturally and spatially-from the river, this book argues that urban areas provide a rich source for understanding people's connections with nature, and in turn, nature's impact on human history. americas,conservation,earth sciences,environmental science,historical study and educational resources,history,human geography,nature and ecology,politics and social sciences,science and math Environmental Science, University of California Press
