Description

The publication of "The Machine in the Garden" places Leo Marx with such brilliant synthesizers as Van Wyck Brooks, F. O. Matthiessen, and Henry Nash Smith.  Taking the deceptively simple theme of pastoralism, he has ranged imaginatively through the landscape of American thought and experience and has helped us to re-see as well as to re-interpret our culture...Students of American civilization, no matter what their specialties, are bound to be influenced by this rich and engaging book.
