Product Description

Review

"Nature as a concept, it is often said, is elusive, complex, promiscuous and yet familiar. Social Nature is a superb introduction to nature′s complexity from the vantage point of the very best of critical geography. An excellent introduction to the epistemological thickets which have grown up around, and which threaten to strangle, our understanding of Nature as artifice and artifact." Michael Watts <!––end––> "No other single volume summarizes and critically reviews the geographical research on social nature." Choice

From the Back Cover

This groundbreaking collection brings together for the first time diverse geographical work on the social construction of nature. Eleven leading contributors not only discuss social nature, but look at the concrete ways in which it is made and the political implications of its construction. They use International case studies to illustrate their theoretical positions. The original contributions are written at a level that is appropriate for upper level students, and a helpful introduction by the editors, looking at the paradigms and perspectives that have been employed in the study of social nature, sets the chapters in context. The volume as a whole enables teachers and students to explore the ways in which social nature is evident and to engage with the direct implications of this for human lives, ecologies and politics.
