Geographies of Nature by Steve Hinchliffe
Book DescriptionGeographies of Nature introduces readers to conventional understandings of nature - realist, environmental, constructivist - while examining alternative accounts from different disciplines - where nature resists easy classification. Accessibly written, organized in 10 chapters in two sections, Geographies of Nature demonstrates how recent thinking has urgent relevance and impact on the ways in which we approach environmental problems. The text: " makes concepts-like environment, conservation, sustainability - accessible and applicable to readers' own experience with the extensive use of case studies " uses text boxes to introduce readers to debates and ideas in ways that make them more easily understood " grounds the reader and proceeds to the explanation of more complex arguments progressively Geographies of Nature presents a new kind of environmental analysis, one that refuses to view nature as wholly separate to the human and nonhuman practices through which it is constantly made and remade.

Pathological Lives, Paperback (December 2016)
Pandemics, epidemics and food borne diseases have become one of the key challenges for contemporary global society. The central claim of Pathological Lives is that any solution offered to these kinds of emerging and often communicable diseases requires a broad-based geographical scrutiny.
Humans, Animals and Biopolitics, Hardback (July 2016)
Human-animal co-existence is central to a politics of life, how we order societies, and to debates about who 'we' humans think 'we' are. This book reflects the multi-sited, multi-species, multi-logic and multiple ways in which lives are and have been assembled, disassembled, practised and possibly policed and politicized.
Environmental Responses, Paperback (July 2003)
Environmental understandings and actions are complex. Environmental responses include both our responses to environmental change and responses of environments induced by human actions, and cover technical measures and tools of evaluation, environmental policy and regulation, and environmental politics.
Changing Environments, Paperback (March 2003)» View all books by Steve Hinchliffe
Changing Environments examines how and why environments change as a result of natural and human mediated processes and why some changes are currently becoming significant.
