Epub Londa Schiebinger ð Colonial Botany Science Commerce And Politics In The Early ð

In the early modern world botany was big science and big business critical to Europe's national and trade ambitions Tracing the dynamic relationships among plants peoples states and economies over the course of three centuries this collection of essays offers a lively challenge to a historiography that has emphasized the rise of modern botany as a story of taxonomies and pure systems of classification Charting a new map of botany along colonial coordinates reaching from Europe to the New World India Asia and other points on the globe Colonial Botany explores how the study naming cultivation and marketing of rare and beautiful plants resulted from and shaped European voyages conuests global trade and scientific explorationFrom the earliest voyages of discovery naturalists sought profitable plants for king and country personal and corporate gain Costly spices and valuable medicinal plants such as nutmeg tobacco sugar Peruvian bark peppers cloves cinnamon and tea ranked prominently among the motivations for European voyages of discovery At the same time colonial profits depended largely on natural historical exploration and the precise identification and effective cultivation of profitable plants This volume breaks new ground by treating the development of the science of botany in its colonial context and situating the early modern exploration of the plant world at the volatile nexus of science commerce and state politicsWritten by scholars as international as their subjects Colonial Botany uncovers an emerging cultural history of plants and botanical practices in Europe and its possessions

    Okay this book was awesome First I was really excited because I was getting to read about plants which is my favorite topic ever in my history class which was awesome Second this book was really well put together Often books where each chapter are written by a different author can be disjointed but I was able to follow themes pretty easily I also liked that different chapters focused on different places both in Europe and around the world adding a lot of diversity in perspectives but also showing common themes around the world There were a few chapters that we didn't read in class that I'm definitely going to go back to as soon as I have time but from what I've read I learned a lot and my ideas about how the European empires functioned and expanded have changed dramaticallyOn a related note I read Elizabeth Gilbert's The Signature of All Things this summer and it touches on many of these themes in a fictional narrative so if you enjoyed this book or enjoyed that book and want to read books with similar information I would recommend them both
