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