This is a glorious interweaving of scholarship and imagination. Equally good are Schama’s The Embarrassment of Riches: An Interpretation of Dutch Culture in the Golden Age, and and Citizens: A Chronicle of the French Revolution.

Michael Manfredi

Schama’s book focuses on the relationships between real environments and mythical ones, arguing that together real landscapes and the landscapes of the mind constitute that elusive and subjective definition of what we call “Nature.”
