Remaking reality : nature at the millenium by Bruce Braun( )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book rejects apocalyptic pronouncements that the end of the millennium represents the 'end' of nature as well. Remaking Reality brings together contributors from across the human sciences who argue that a notion of 'social nature' provides great hope for the future. Applying a variety of theoretical approaches to social nature, and engaging with debates in politics, science, technology and social movements surrounding race, gender and class, the contributors explore important and emerging sites where nature is now being remade with considerable social and ecological consequences."--Publisher description

Nature by Noel Castree( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nature is an advanced introduction to its topic. For students, it aims to inform and to challenge by showing that nature is not what it seems to be. For geography teachers and researchers, Nature brings together ideas and arguments hitherto compartmentalised into geography's three main parts (human, physical and environmental geography). In so doing it offers fresh insights into one of the discipline's most familiar, yet elusive, objects of analysis, policy formation and moral concern."--Jacket
The point is to change it : geographies of hope and survival in an age of crisis by Noel Castree( )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commissioned to celebrate the 40th year of "Antipode: A Radical Journal of Geography", this book evaluates the role of the critical social scientist and how the point of their work is not simply to interpret the world but to change it. This book brings together leading critical social scientists to consider the major challenges of our time and what is to be done about them; it applies diagnostic and normative reasoning to momentous issues including the global economic crisis, transnational environmental problems, record levels of malnourishment, never ending wars, and proliferating natural disasters. It is theoretically diverse - a range of perspectives are put to work ranging from Marxism and feminism to anarchism. The chapters comprise advanced but accessible analyses of the present and future world order

Making sense of nature by Noel Castree( Book )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We listen to a cacophony of voices instructing us how to think and feel about nature, including our own bodies. The news media, wildlife documentaries, science magazines, and environmental NGOs are among those clamouring for our attention. But are we empowered by all this knowledge or is our dependence on various epistemic communities allowing our thoughts, sentiments and activities to be unduly governed by others? Drawing on over 30 years on research into the 'social constitution of nature', Making Sense of Nature shows that what we call 'nature' is made sense of for us in ways that make it central to social order, social change and social dissent. By utilising insights and extended examples from anthropology, cultural studies, human geography, philosophy, politics, sociology, science studies, this interdisciplinary text asks whether we can better make sense of nature for ourselves, and thus participate more meaningfully in momentous decisions about the future of life - human and non-human - on the planet. This book shows how 'nature' can be made sense of without presuming its naturalness. The challenge is not so much to rid ourselves of the idea of nature and its 'collateral concepts' (such as genes) but instead, we need to be more alert to how, why and with what effects ideas about 'nature' get fashioned and deployed in specific situations"--
