Theme Park Landscapes: Antecedents and Variations, Volume 20

Front Cover
Terence G. Young, Robert B. Riley
Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection, 2002 - Architecture - 300 pages
Theme parks, their history and reception, are the topic of this collection of twelve essays. The notion of Disneyfication recurs, as some of the authors muse on the human need for artifice, both in general and at specific theme parks, including Stourhead and Kew Park in England, Cades Cove in the US, Huis Ten Bosch in The Netherlands, and folk villages in China. The contributors teach art history, landscape architecture, sociology, English, and geography in the UK and the US. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
