From the Publisher"Noel Castree has written another bestseller. This book effortlessly synthesises from across the social and natural sciences a huge body of knowledge and reflection on the idea of ‘nature’. Castree engages with all the important debates and authors and makes them accessible for his reader, offering not closed answers but lively provocations to further thought. This is geographical scholarship at its very best." Mike Hulme, Professor of Climate and Culture, King’s College London, UK.
"Challenging our sources of knowledge, from the media to activist and scientific writing, Making Sense of Nature gives us powerful tools to think with. I’d put this book in the hands of anyone who wants to jar their own thinking, undermine their own assumptions, and make up their own mind about people and the natural world." Professor Paul Robbins, Director, Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, University of Wisconsin - Madison, USA.
"This accessible and interdisciplinary textbook…has a useful analysis of the relationship between the scientific and entertainment communities whereby specialist knowledge has to be condensed and then translated into a visual narrative." Network Review.
"A new book from Noel Castree is a treat, and we should be grateful that a scholar of his eminence has invested so much effort into a teaching volume, one aimed at upper level undergraduates and master’s students. In this book, Castree also aspires to a general readership." Lesley Head, Department of Geography and Sustainable Communities, University of Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia.
