The first systematic history of gardens and parks from antiquity to the present dayHighly illustratedEach volume shares the same thematic chapters which allows the reader to follow a theme through historyMichael Leslie is Professor of English at Rhodes College.

The radically distinct cultures of the Christian West Byzantium Persianinfluenced Islam and alAndalus resulted in different responses to the garden arts of antiquity and different attitudes to the natural world and its artful manipulation. Yet these cultures interacted and communicated trading plants myths and texts. By the fifteenth century the garden as a cultural phenomenon was immensely sophisticated and a vital element in the way society saw itself and its relation to nature.
