Abstract

Michael Williams was an historical geographer, who worked on a variety of themes in England, Australia, and the USA, and on a global scale. Wetland drainage, settlement creation, and the varied fortunes of forests formed major aspects of his work. He taught in Australia, and at Oxford (U.K), and held visiting appointments in various North American universities. His writings and teaching illustrate how the rapid growth of environmental history co-existed, often fruitfully but sometimes with tension, with the practice of traditional historical geography. - (HC)
