Hughes, J. Donald. “Preface: Beginning with Rome.” Environment and History 10, no. 2, “The Nature of G. P. Marsh: Tradition and Historical Judgement” special issue (May 2004): 123–5. George Perkins Marsh chose to open Man and Nature, his magnum opus, with a discussion of the environmental decline and fall of the Roman Empire. The choice was no accident. Rome was for Marsh a case study that epitomised his thesis and was intended to serve as a preface to the entire volume. All rights reserved. © 2004 The White Horse Press
