qNational parks have always been an emotive and iconic symbol, ever since the first parks of the modern era were created in the mid-nineteenth century. This book, based on original archival research, delves deeply into their character and significance, and the larger context in which they first developed. The author identifies, describes and reflects upon what caused governments to intervene and establish, in that early modern period, what are today recognized to be national parks. However much they were created as acts of defiance, the parks gave added entrepreneurial impetus to the remoter parts of North America, the overseas territories of the imperial European powers, and of Europe itself. Those of Sweden, Switzerland and Italy are shown to become exemplars of what others might aspire to, while there is extensive coverage of parks in Asia, Africa and Australia as well.This book, based on original archival research, delves deeply into their character and significance, and the larger context in which they first developed.
