* Grove, Richard H. Green Imperialism: Colonial Expansion, Tropical Island Edens and the Origins of Environmentalism, 1600-1860. Cambridge University Press, 1995. xiv + 525 pp. ISBN 0 521 40385 5. [a review by Jane Carruthers (University of South Africa) on H-AFRICA, quoted with permission, notes, Using insights from postmodern literary theory, Marxian class analysis, resource economics and many other disciplines, Grove traces the origins of modern environmental concern -intellectually, culturally and practically - to European expansion in general, but especially to contact with islands and tropical biota. He explains the importance of islands in European culture, extracting information from Shakespeare, Daniel Defoe, Darwin, and also from the archives in places as varied as Lyons, Brest, Bangalore, Mauritius, St Vincent, Pretoria, Trinidad and Tobago, Cambridge and Kew. The importance of islands, as Grove explains it, is that being isolated and relatively small, they rapidly and dramatically demonstrated the mechanisms and processes of ecological change brought about by European penetration, thus generating theoretical enquiry about such matters and impacting upon environmental policy. Also covered are the environmental and colonial histories of tropical India, St Helena, the Cape of Good Hope, Mauritius, and the Caribbean. Carruthers concludes her review: "Essentially, Green Imperialism can be summarized as the history of how westerners have yearned for a sustainable environment, yet introducing to so many parts of the world so many of the factors which make that impossible. However, far from a `doom and gloom' position, Grove shows how the interaction between people and environment can be surprisingly constructive and how our cultural history has been affected by it."]
