Suburban sprawl, advertising clutter, vast industrial plantations of spindly pines punctuated by stone-lined gutters in place of streams--this was the thoroughly modern landscape of Germany by the turn of the century. Most people ignored the devastating changes in their environment, or quickly rationalized them away as the price that had to be paid for "progress." But in 1904, three-quarters of a century before Greenpeace, one group arose that did not compromise on conservation: the movement for "homeland-protection," or "Heimatschutz."
Aesthetic or "romantic" ideas about the environment have often expressed valuable critiques of our all-too-utilitarian modern lifestyle. In the English-speaking world
John Ruskin and William Morris are well known for this kind of ecological antimodernism; a very similar aesthetic concern for landscape energized the "Heimatschutz" movement. Drawing on a wide range of archival and printed sources, many made accessible here for the first time, William H. Rollins shows that this was a broad-based middle-class reform movement that combined social egalitarianism with protection for the entire working landscape.
"A Greener Vision of Home" will appeal to readers in German studies and cultural studies and others interested in some of the roots and major strategies of today's highly visible environmental movement.
William H. Rollins is Lecturer in the Department of German, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.

From the author of such works as Dark Horizons, E.V.I.L., and the bestseller Haunted., comes the first in a trilogy that will keep you biting your nails in suspense, cringing in horror, and asking for more. The year is 1987. Running a restaurant can be a difficult, stressful venture, but the Rifflet's have it all figured out. Decent location with no other real competition, right off of Alligator Alley, steady flow of customers, and they receive numerous compliments about the food they serve. If only the people dining in knew where the meat came from that they were consuming... Dylan Masterson, lead singer of the rock band Forbidden Fruit, seems to have it all but is battling his own inner demons. Little does he know that he'll be fighting some real life monsters who have different plans for his future.

This book is long awaited within the contemporarily creative field of cultural psychologies.
