RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 664840023 LA English T1 Pastoral capitalism : a history of suburban corporate landscapes A1 Mozingo, Louise A., PB MIT Press PP Cambridge, Mass. YR 2011 SN 9780262015431 0262015439 9780262526142 026252614X AB "Mozingo distinguishes among three forms of corporate landscapes--the corporate campus, the corporate estate, and the office park--and examines suburban corporate landscapes built and inhabited by such companies as Bell Labs, General Motors, Deere & Company, and Microsoft. She also considers the globalization of pastoral capitalism in Europe and the developing world including Singapore, India, and China. Mozingo argues that, even as it is proliferating, pastoral capitalism needs redesign, as do many of our metropolitan forms, for pressing social, cultural, political, and environmental reasons. Future transformations are impossible, however, unless we understand the past. Pastoral Capitalism offers an indispensible chapter in urban history, examining not only the design of corporate landscapes but also the economic, social, and cultural models that determined their form."--Dust jacket p.1.
