Susan Herrington is an Associate Professor of landscape architecture and environmental design at the University of British Columbia. She is also a licensed landscape architect in the United States.
Herrington deftly and succinctly draws together a vast range of material on landscape from several disciplines. She writes engagingly without oversimplifying; she thinks carefully without losing sight of the lay of the land. Both lay readers and professionals will come away from this small gem looking at and living in the landscape in new ways. --Bruce Janz, University of Central Florida, USA [Herrington's] focus on contemporary landscapes is a fresh approach that is commendable in its scope as well as being rich, informative and accessibly written. While it draws on diverse philosophical perspectives it also draws on an impressive range of interdisciplinary sources. On Landscapes is an indispensable starting point for anyone who wants to think seriously about landscapes. -Environmental Values
