Reviews

This volume creatively opens up and critically explores an engaging theoretical space and suggestive cultural perspective with the notion of the 'ecoscape'-Backhaus' and Murungi's robust new geographical and philosophical idea. . . . Rooted within the broader framework of 'geophilia'-literally, love of the earth-this work shows the promise and productive power of a novel and emerging concept, one that should be of great interest to environmentalists, social theorists, geographers, and philosophers. -- David Macauley, Penn State University The volume as a whole offers readers suggestions about new concepts and reaffirmation of critiques, applied to specific historical and contemporary cases. * Environmental Philosophy * The contributors to Ecoscapes convince us that scholars of all disciplines must remain earthbound as we theorize. [It] is a must-read for any serious scholar. -- Lois Ann Lorentzen, University of San Francisco
