Spaces in Translation: Japanese Gardens and the West
By: Christian Tagsold

We often view famous Japanese gardens in Tokyo, Kyoto, or even across the word, as representative of the essence of Japanese culture. Christian Tagsold argues that the idea of a Japanese garden has less to do with Japan's history and traditions, and more to do with its interactions with the west. From research on over eighty Japanese gardens in ten countries, Tagsold explores their history, popularity, and shifting aesthetic, as well as that most elusive concept - authenticity.
