The first to consider the topic of nature in modern geography as a whole, t his distinctive text looks at all its major meanings, from the human body a nd psyche through to the non-human world, and develops the argument that st udent readers should abandon the idea of knowing what nature is in favour o f a close scrutiny of what agendas lie behind competing conceptions of it. It deals with, amongst others, the following areas: the idea of nature the 'nature' of geography de-naturalization and re-naturalization after-nature. As everything from global warming to GM foods becomes headline news, the use and abuse of nature is on the agenda as never before. Synthesizing a wealth of diverse and complex information, this text makes the significant theories, debates and information on nature accessible to students of geography, environmental studies, sociology, and cultural studies.
