Abstract

This critical review debates the issues raised in Mark Whitehead’s 2009 book, ‘‘State, Science and the Skies: Governmentalities of the British atmosphere’’. After a short introduction that positions the book, four commentators draw on their own work in political geography, the sociology of science, atmospheric science and cultural geography, respectively, to offer sympathetic critiques of the book and its arguments. The critical review concludes with a response by the author to the issues raised.
