The Political Logic of Mediterrean Landscape (Web Resources)
Title: The Political Logic of Mediterrean Landscape
Author: Meredith Chesson
Abstract: All landscapes, because they have been moulded by human action, are to some extent political. This is particularly evident in the Mediterranean Basin, a crossroad where civilisations have coalesced and often clashed. Although the larger of the Mediterranean Islands have been the home centres of great civilisations (Chapters 3 and 5) during prehistoric times, they have been unable to resist the repeated invasions of mainland-based powers that battled successively for political and commercial authority.
