Although the integration of sculpture in gardens is part of a long tradition dating back at least to antiquity, the sculptures themselves are often overlooked, both in the history of art and in the history of the garden. This collection of essays considers the changing relationship between sculpture and gardens over the last three centuries, focusing on four British archetypes: the Georgian landscape garden, the Victorian urban park, the outdoor spaces of twentieth-century modernism and the late-twentieth century sculpture park. Through a series of case studies exploring the contemporaneous audiences of gardens, the book uncovers the social, political and gendered messages revealed by sculpture's placement and suggests that the garden can itself be read as a sculptural landscape.

Berlin, 1933. William E. Dodd kommt als Botschafter nach Deutschland. Zunächst recht unkritisch, verkehren er und seine Tochter Martha mit hochrangigen Nazis und besuchen deren schillernde Partys. Doch die Schatten werden immer dunkler - bis zur blutigen »Nacht der langen Messer«, in der ein Ausbruch von Gewalt und Hass endgültig Hitlers skrupellose Ambitionen offenbart. Er ist nicht Roosevelts erste Wahl, doch da sich kein anderer Kandidat findet, wird der gutmütige Geschichtsprofessor Dodd nach Berlin geschickt. Dieser muss sich nicht nur mit den merkwürdigen Entwicklungen in Deutschland auseinandersetzen, sondern auch einem intriganten, politisch gleichgültigen State Department entgegentreten. Unterdessen ist Martha verzückt von den Partys und dem Pomp - und den hübschen jungen Nazis. Doch als sich Attacken auf Juden häufen, die Presse der Zensur unterworfen wird, Entwürfe von beängstigenden Gesetzen in den Umlauf kommen und schließlich in der »Nacht der langen Messer« Hitlers wahre Absichten offenbar werden, müssen die Dodds die Gefahr erkennen. Atemberaubend temporeich erzählt, mit unvergesslichen Porträts der neuen Herren von Deutschland, zeigt das Buch aus der Perspektive von externen Augenzeugen die Machtergreifung der Nazis in einem neuen Licht - und gibt Einblick, warum die Welt die ernste Bedrohung durch Hitler erst wahrnahm, als Berlin und Europa von Blut und Terror überschwemmt wurden.
