5.0 out of 5 stars one of the most influential books in its domain, 28 April 2009

This review is from: Uncommon Ground: Rethinking the Human Place in Nature (Paperback)
Cronon's book is one invaluable source of knowledge on the current environmental state. The collected essays offer varied views of the same reality: nature in its true, stripped off condition. No beautiful words and utopian dreams. But a useful picture of the kinds of varied and highly complex relations between humans and the environment. A much treasured account for those readers who problematize about the deep connections of man with the natural world and the multiple ways in which we inescapably constantly transform it to serve our high-tec, post-industrial, post-modern insatiable civilization.

4.0 out of 5 stars Naturally, 28 Oct. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Uncommon Ground: Rethinking the Human Place in Nature (Paperback)
Cronon provides an excellent selection of commentaries by some of the most influential writers (notably Haraway) on the topic of 'What is nature?' fully examining time and space issues. This text gives an in-depth insight into society's perceptions of nature and it's conservation something which is of major current interest. Although fairly US-orientated, this book has been vital for my studies of environmentalism (part of the Geography undergrad course at Oxford University) and I especially enjoyed White's contribution: "Are You an Environmentalist or Do You Work for a Living?".
