商品簡介

作者簡介

Since its settlement in 1630, Boston, its harbor, and outlying regions have undergone monumental transformations through natural forces and by the hands of humans. Remaking Boston chronicles many of the events that altered the physical landscape of Boston while also offering multidisciplinary perspectives on the environmental history of one of America's oldest and largest metropolitan areas.
Profiling this ever-changing environment, the contributors examine Boston from its early glacial formation to the present, outlining the physical characteristics and composition of the land and harbor, and the significant environmental impact of human occupation. Individual chapters address population movements, land use, infrastructure development, historic climate changes, biological adaptations, and reclamation projects, among other topics.
Remaking Boston presents a fascinating and comprehensive analysis of the many processes that shaped this city and its surroundings. It also offers valuable lessons for the study of metropolitan environments and the efforts being made to improve and preserve them for future generations.
Anthony N. Penna is professor of history at Northeastern University. He is the author of the forthcoming book The Human Footprint: A Global Environmental History, and a Fellow of the Massachusetts Historical Society.

Conrad Edick Wright is director of research and Ford Editor of Publications at the Massachusetts Historical Society. He is the author or coeditor of several books, including Revolutionary Generation: Harvard Men and the Consequences of Independence and The Education of Henry Adams: A Centennial Version.
