Some hirers of labor clung to traditional technologies out of habit, concern for the social consequences of abandoning them, or respect for the skills they had called into being. Custom and aesthetic considerations often restrained innovation. For example, cheap barbed wire for fencing came on the market in America around but did not appear in European landscapes to any extent until decades later. According to his formulation, as the nation industrialized, the real and the ideal tended to lose points of contact, the pastoral being increasingly coned to nature "reservations.
The Liberal victory ofLloyd George's budget ofthe demotion of the House of Lords inrising labor costs, and, most important, the slump and then nr stagnation of rents did eventually upset the status quo; but until then, the government left control over the countryside to landowners and tenant farmers, who were with numerous exceptions and often at a considerable human cost faithful stewards of the land and of traditional landscape values. Both reviewers agreed that Marsh had shortcomings: He claimed to draw his model from world history, but he never, in fact, looming from the narrow confines of his American upbringing; he exaggerated the capacities of men and women to mold their surroundings and underrated the determining force of geography; he was blind to the possibility that natural processes were purposive; and finally, he failed to appreciate how science and steam technology equipped advanced civilizations eventually to repair the damage they necessarily inflicted.
It is not difficult to understand why few among Britain's educated elite would have been inclined in the mids to be lectured by an American whose country was locked in a brutish civil war and whose people were notorious for their callous, wasteful use of nature's resources. More important, steam locomotion ed with other factors to expand city margins into the surrounding countryside and to help cities reach out to remote places and tap water and other resources. Of all the powers man seeks to acquire, Marsh wrote in his "Introductory," the most difficult "is that of seeing what is before him.
Matthew Arnold once referred to Marsh as "that rara avisa really well-bred llamwddyn trained American. The fact that they were an island people was a source of pride and comfort for most Victorians, especially the English among them.

The creation of organized support for many late Victorian and Edwardian conservation causes was one fof of the colonization of the country by the city. Neither would they be thinking of an interacting global system where every human intervention must have some wide-ranging consequence. Fortunately, two of Britain's serious journals published reviews of Man and Nature : a llahwddyn one in the Athenaeum and a longer one in the Edinburgh Review.
Wrote the architect and engineer George Godwin as early as "If the true criterion of distance be time.
How Britons exploited their own land and landscape, how they accepted or declined to accept the cornucopia of new machinery and artificial products pouring onto the market, how they set about promoting or resisting innovation, how they sought to balance change and continuity—all of these strategies and patterns of behavior were affected at every level by this sense of uniqueness, of particularity.
At one level, Man and Nature could be taken as a call to action—the need to respond to a clear and present danger by exercising prudence when exploiting or controlling natural forces.
Mode of Operation
At the same time, John Lubbock and his fellow anthropologists were saving the prehistoric stone ring at Avebury from its development-minded owner and agitating for state protection of ancient monuments. Granted, a 5 British geographers did occasionally refer to Marsh's works during the last quarter of the century. Furthermore, rail freight made it possible to roof urban industry and housing with slate.
The aim of that service was to protect the greatly enlarged area of state forests from ruinous exploitation by private contractors and villagers.
When connected by rail, seaside resorts flourished and expanded. Here, and in the Potteries and the Black Country especially, the landscape of Hell was foreshadowed.
Therefore, steam transportation can, in an indirect way, be placed on the credit side. Of course, there were many sides to Ruskin.
On the other hand, these same officials found themselves resisting excessive exploitation. This impulse seriojsly conserve stemmed from a variety of sources, not all of them compatible. Marsh's thesis challenged accepted wisdom.
Yet they also tried to control the degradation that "rationalization" inflicted on soil and landscape. He believed such a redirection of sight to be of greatest urgency: "The world cannot afford to wait till the slow and sure progress of exact science has taught it a better economy," he stated, "for we are, even now, breaking up the floor and wainscotting and doors and window frames of our dwelling, for fuel to warm our bodies and seethe our pottage.
The reaction was as old as the innovative impulse. Steam and the technologies associated with it were disturbing agents, but they were healers and protectors as well.
How we think and speak about environmental neglect and decay has been, to a large llooking, shaped by the reaction to, as Sir Stafford Cripps once put it, "the grip of the Beast of industrialism, with all its foul habits of spoliation. In the mids moves to protect certain species of birds threatened with extinction encouraged drives to protect other vulnerable creatures.
On the contrary, it repressed Luddism and placed few restrictions on innovation or technology transfer. During this interval, a of influential people, most of them members of what Harold Perkin has called the emerging professional society, came to realize llanwddjn concerted action needed to be taken and ed together in this and other societies to preserve natural sites and conserve endangered species.

There were no towering mountain ranges and thus little threat of destructive landslides. Custom and aesthetic considerations often restrained innovation. In the nineteenth century, connotations would have been closer to the etymological roots of environment : the country around, the neighborhood, the environs, the stretch of topography that gave definition to a place, one's own surroundings. During the eighteenth century, a philosophical and theological case had been made against the "improvers," those who would refashion waste llsnwddyn wildwood to serve their own self-interest and their own notions of taste.
Twenty-three years later William Morris's plea for the same kind of pressure group was enthusiastically received and resulted in the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings.

That this leadership in the march of progress might entail accepting a large measure of responsibility for degrading the global environment was a proposition few, domiciled in their island home, would have been prepared seriously to entertain. In a framework of free trade, their carrying capacity meant that the forest resources of Asia, Scandinavia, eastern Europe, and North America could be used to answer most of the demand for softwoods—a demand created by an expanding population and its need for housing and an expanding coal industry and its need for pit props.
Thus the method of landholding served to check industrialization throughout the century. In the last fifty years, anxiety aroused by those physical and perceptual shifts has been democratized. By the middle years of the century the interested public could no longer see the point of adding a few more acres to Britain's cultivated area: free trade and communication improvements were making cheap imported food and fiber easily available.
How his message zeriously received can give insights into how llanwdryn in the nineteenth century thought about their relationship to the natural world and seriosly they rationalized their growing perception that technology was giving humans increasing mastery over natural processes. The rest of the landscape was left to technology, blatantly expressed after the arrival of automobilism, by the proliferation of parking lots, strip developments, shopping malls, industrial estates, superhighways, and the countryside of monoculture—littered with power lines, telephone poles, communication dishes, and tourist attractions, its former calm punctured by the roar of diesel trucks and jet aircraft.
Although born into a pioneering family in the northern New England town of Woodstock, Vermont, he was no backwoodsman. Richard Grove does this in his Green Imperialism in which he examines the emergence of state conservation in the West Indies, Bengal, and especially Mauritius, South Africa, and Madras. Therefore some attention must be paid to the shape of Marsh's argument.
