What is Nature: Culture, Politics and the Non-Human

Front Cover
Wiley, Sep 6, 1995 - Social Science - 304 pages
'This is an excellent book. It addresses what, in both conceptual and political terms, is arguably the most important source of tension and confusion in current arguments about the environment, namely the concept of nature; and it does so in a way that is both sensitive to, and critical of, the two antithetical ways of understanding this that dominate existing discussions.' Russell Keat, University of Edinburgh
