About the Author

Sally Eden was a professor in the Department of Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences at the University of Hull, UK. She spent twenty years researching how people relate to the environment through consumption, leisure, knowledge and policy.

Reviews

'The public' is not one thing and their engagements with the environment take multiple forms. This book brilliantly takes these simple ideas into a fascinating account of how environmental publics know, participate, consume, enjoy, campaign, vote and work. Drawing together 20 years of her top quality research, readers of this book will have the privilege of immersing themselves in Sally Eden's incisive analysis and accessible theorisation of what 'environmental engagements' can be taken to mean.'

Professor Gordon Walker, Lancaster Environment Centre and DEMAND Centre, Lancaster University, UK

'Through Environmental Publics, Sally Eden has cemented her position as one of the pre-eminent writers on environmental geography. Brilliantly drawing together a diverse wealth of original empirical material, she compellingly argues that studies of environmental engagement should refocus on the multiple publics that form around everyday practices. Conceptually original and insightful, the book is engagingly written and should be essential reading for anyone interested in producing better environmental futures.'

Dr Christopher Bear, Senior Lecturer in Human Geography, Cardiff University, UK.

Eden's book, published posthumously after her passing last year, cannot help but take more than a
tinge of sadness as a result; even for those, like me, who never had the chance to meet her. Environmental
Publics
is a suitable and substantial cap to an academic career - overarching, drawing in a
variety of themes and research projects; elegant, carefully and clearly setting out arguments and
gathering this array of details; and accessible, well-written, engaging and simply gathering theory
and empirical evidence to make her points.

Gerald Taylor Aiken, Local Environment Journal, The International Journal of Justice and Sustainability
