5.0 out of 5 stars Seeds of Wealth, 29 July 2003
This review is from: Seeds of Wealth: Four plants that made men rich (Paperback)
As a follow-up to his previous work, Henry Hobhouse has provided another unique and fascinating approach to historical interpretation in the latest fruit of his labor--Seeds of Wealth.
His chapters on timber and tobacco are providing seeds for thought for the Virginia Historical Society to consider doing a museum exhibition on the subject. One of the strengths of Hobhouse's work is his successful use of geography. We Americans have tended to overlook the good work of the historical geographers, while scholars in the UK, like Hobhouse, have taken advantage of their unique perspective of the past. His two works-- Seeds of Change and now Seeds of Wealth--are good examples of putting that discipline to its best use. It's too bad that Seeds of Wealth is not yet available for distribution here in the States.
