Books by Series - Reading the American Landscape

Series Editor(s): Lake Douglas

The Reading the American Landscape series invites works on both the practical applications and the cultural significance of landscape design in the United States, past, present, and future. It seeks to publish books from both established and emerging scholars about the intersection of landscape subjects with other disciplines in the natural and social sciences, arts, and humanities. Appropriate works may take multiple forms, from examinations of physical places and environmental engagements to investigations of social attitudes and human activities.
Series Editor Lake Douglas has degrees in landscape architecture from LSU and Harvard and a PhD from the University of New Orleans in urban history/urban studies. Currently he is associate professor at LSU’s Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture and associate dean of research and development at the LSU College of Art & Design. A registered landscape architect, he has published widely in books as well as articles, reviews, and design critiques in popular, professional, and academic journals in America and Europe.
