Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. In the early 1900s, British Columbia embarked on a brief but intense effort to manufacture a modern countryside. The government wished to reward Great War veterans with new lives: settlers would benefit from living in a rural community, considered a more healthy and moral alternative to urban life. But the fundamental reason for the land resettlement project was the rise of progressive or new liberal thinking, as reformers advocated an expanded role for the state in guaranteeing the prosperity and economic security of its citizens. James Murton examines how this process unfolded, and demonstrates how the human-environment relationship of the early twentieth century shaped the province as it is today. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : In the early 1900s, British Columbia embarked on a brief but intense effort to manufacture a modern countryside. The government wished to reward veterans of the Great War with new lives: soldiers and other settlers would benefit from living in a rural community, considered a more healthy and moral alternative to urban life. But the fundamental reason for the land resettlement project was the rise of progressive or "new liberal" thinking, as reformers advocated an expanded role for the state in guaranteeing the prosperity and economic security of its citizens.

This ideological shift pushed the government to intervene directly in the management of not only society but also the natural environment. As most arable, accessible land in British Columbia was already being farmed by 1919, the state had to undertake environmental engineering projects on a scale not yet attempted in the province. Creating a Modern Countryside examines how this process unfolded, identifies its successes and failures, and demonstrates how the human-environment relationship of the early twentieth century shaped the province we live in today.

About the Author: James Murton is an associate professor of history at Nipissing University in North Bay, Ontario.

Description du livre University of British Columbia Press. Hardback. État : new. BRAND NEW, Creating a Modern Countryside: Liberalism and Land Resettlement in British Columbia, James Murton, In the early 1900s, British Columbia embarked on a brief but intense effort, with long consequences, to manufacture a modern countryside. For the first time, the state directly intervened in planning and implementing land settlement. "Creating a Modern Countryside" examines how this process unfolded and assesses its consequences. James Murton argues that the state's relationship to the environment was determined in the early twentieth century by the idea of centralized, "scientific" management of social problems by experts - known as progressivism or new liberalism. The efforts of new liberal experts to reshape forests and deserts into farmland largely failed, due to their inability to properly comprehend environmental and social complexity. Ultimately, Murton argues, the environment itself played a role in ending liberal land resettlement in the 1920s and 1930s. One ironic outcome of the program, however, was the expanded state apparatus that emerged after World War II with an even greater capacity to manage environmental change. "Creating a Modern Countryside" offers a new way of understanding the human-environmental relationship in the 20th century, and shows how this relationship shaped the province we live in today.
