This 20th issue addresses a theme that has thus far rarely been covered at the IISH: perceptions of nature. Although nature may not at first seem to relate to traditional IISH themes, such as social movements and labour history, we do in fact hold interesting and important materials about how mankind has viewed nature in recent centuries – an issue that surfaces increasingly in public debate.
In addition, readers will find the usual surprises regarding new acquisitions and a feature about the major renovation to the entrance hall of our building.
