Reviews

"Accessibly written, lucidly argued, and capacious in its ambit, there is so much in this book to savor, to be inspired by, and to provoke."-Jeffrey Jerome Cohen, author of Stone: An Ecology of the Inhuman"In addition to the descriptions and analyses of imaginative activism, strange agencies of non-human entities, and the politics of place, Alaimo develops compelling theories of self, action, and being human along the way."-J. Jack Halberstam, University of Southern California


"Despite the gravity of her subject matter, Alaimo's examples and writing are often playful. This not only echoes the complexity and occasional contradictions of environmental politics but also makes Exposed a very enjoyable read. This book is much more than a theoretical exploration; it calls on us to rethink what it means to be human and act accordingly."-New Books Network "A must read for members of the American Rock Garden Society, as well as those living in similar areas worldwide."-Natural Areas Journal
