This edition contains a new introduction and bibliography covering the many developments in garden history during the last dozen years.John Dixon Hunt is Professor in the School of English and American Studies at the University of East Anglia and editor of the International Journal of Garden History. Peter Willis, an architect, is reader in the History of Architecture at the University of Newcastle.

From the Back Cover:

A garden classic, 'The Genius Of The Place' reveals that the history of landscape gardening is much more than a history of design and style; it opens up a wide perspective of English cultural history, showing how landscape gardening was gradually transformed over two centuries into an art that has been widely imitated throughout Europe and North America.

Review:

"A significant contribution to the subject of garden history. The introduction is one of the finest summaries of that 200-year period of garden history that is currently available" A. Nelson , Landscape Architecture (review of the first edition)



"For each extract, Mr. Hunt and Mr. Willis have provided a witty and instructive introduction, as well as a general introduction that is a masterpiece of elegant compactness." Anatole Broyard , The New York Times (review of the first edition)
