Prof. Matteson's Forests in Revolutionary France on FT's List of Summer Books for 2015

In a recent article, Financial Times writers and guests compiled a list of their favorite books of the year so far. Prof. Kieko Matteson's Forests in Revolutionary France: Conservation, Community and Conflict, 1669-1848, made it onto this list!

From the Financial Times: "Putting a long span of French history in a new light, environmental historian Matteson explores the struggle between elites and the people over the forests that were a vital resource for Europeans at the dawn of the modern era. A fresh and stimulating study."
