Bulldozer : Demolition and Clearance of the Postwar Landscape


What if the best way to talk about the evolution of the American (and a fortiori European) landscape of the last century was to focus on the history of the machines that made it possible, rather than talking about plans, declarations of intentions or big names in urban planning and landscape planning ? This seems the bet launched – and held! – by Francesca Russello Ammon. This remarkable work is not only a history of techniques. It also shows, through the analysis of literature for post-war children, for example, how these machines have come to transform the mental relationships between humans and their landscapes.
