Reviews

"Democracy's dilemma is how to leaven one-dimensional economic globalization with social and environmental imperatives. Paehlke makes an ambitious and compelling case, laced with his trademark optimism, for a democratic pincer movement from above and below, designed to recapture 'the earth' from 'the globe'. This is an essential contribution from one of our most original and imaginative environmental thinkers."--Andrew Dobson, Professor of Politics, Keele University, UK "Political Nature is a significant contribution to the field. Not enough has been made elsewhere of the major traditions in political theory in the context of contemporary environmental politics, and this book goes a long way toward addressing that problem."--Andrew Dobson, Professor of Politics, Keele University, UK "This book provides a valuable overview of spatial cognition and its possible roles in abstract thought--a notoriously difficult issue, but an increasingly important one. Although its subject matter is primarily psychological, the book includes contributions from anthropology, linguistics and neuroscience. Spatial Schemas in Abstract Thought should attract the interest of a wide community of researchers."--Alan Garnham, Professor, Laboratory of Experimental Psychology, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK "If you thought that environmental philosophy had lost sight of environmental practice, think again. Anyone who has ever despaired at bringing activists and theorists into beneficial contact will find plenty of succor and sound advice in these pages."--Andrew Dobson, Professor of Politics, Keele University, UK "A magnificent achievement which will be a key point of reference for years to come."--Andrew Dobson, Professor of Politics, Keele University, UK "This is a brilliant book -- clear, direct, and scholarly as well as committed. The authors bring adaptation to the forefront of climate change debate. Who owes what to whom in this era of common yet differentiated responsibility? Fairness is critical to successful climate change policy, and this book shows us the way."--Andrew Dobson, Professor of Politics, Keele University, UK
