Media reviews

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 "No other single volume summarizes and critically reviews the geographical research on social nature." Choice
