Description - Geographies of Nature by Steve Hinchliffe

'Steve Hinchliffe has produced an exemplary introduction to cutting edge work on the geographies of nature. Intellectually demanding, clearly written and empirically rich, this is a book that deserves a wide readership within and beyond the Geographical discipline' - Sarah J. Whatmore, Professor of Environment and Public Policy, Director International Graduate School, Oxford University Centre for the Environment Geographies 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', and '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.
