Abstract

Is human society so all-pervading that it makes sense to talk about the end of nature? Or are we living in a world where nature matters more than ever before? Geographies of Nature provides a reasoned and case study rich engagement with contemporary nature practices, introducing readers to conventional understandings of nature while examining alternative accounts from different disciplines - where nature resists easy classification.
Accessibly written, Geographies of Nature demonstrates how recent thinking has urgent relevance and impact on the ways in which we approach environmental problems and policies, from risk and biosecurity, to the conservation of rare species and the ways we understand and sustain our cities, to our relations with animals and other nonhumans and the ways in which culturenatures are organised nationally and internationally.
