Contested Natures (Theory, Culture & Society)
by Phil Macnaghten and John Urry
This book explores the changing significance of nature in daily life.
The authors argue that there is no singular `nature'; out
there waiting to be saved. Rather, the authors provide a novel and
compelling account of multiple 'natures'. Nature is shown as
irreducibly contested and embedded.
