Reviews

"Mark Whitehead's 2009 book State, Science and the Skies constitutes a compelling and important contribution to the RGS--IBG Book Series ... This fascinating book is part of an increasing literature on a much neglected area of study: the role and importance of the atmosphere in our lives (e.g. Jankovic, 2000; Latour, 2003; Strauss and Orlove, 2003; Kessel, 2006; Thornes, 2008) ... State, Science and the Skies should provide us with an important guide to the geographies of the atmosphere. It is especially helpful in order to cultivate some sense of relief to Sloterdijk's (2009) emphasis on the air as a means of administering death through environmental means." ( Geoform , 1 September 2012)
