### Review

“Robbins, Hintz and Moore have taken something excellent and made it even better. It remains as comprehensive yet accessible as the first, and by adding new material about human-nature relations, the authors ensure that edition two reflects important recent developments in thinking and practice.”
—***Noel Castree, University of Manchester***

“This masterful synthesis of environment-society scholarship brings together cutting-edge ways of thinking about nature/society entanglements with highly grounded objects of exploration–from lawns to bottled water to uranium. The dynamic and accessible writing style belies the book’s empirical and theoretical sophistication. For upper-level undergrads and lower-level graduate students of environment-society relations, this new edition remains *the* “go-to” text in the field.”
—***Kendra McSweeny, Ohio State University Columbus***

“As an introductory text reflecting contemporary scholarship via plural perspectives and hybrid objects, Environment and Society continues to innovate.”
—***Jim Proctor, Lewis & Clark College***
