    DescriptionEnvironmentalism and the environmental social sciences appear to be in a period of disorientation and perhaps even transition. This innovative collection draws together leading international thinkers to explore the notion that one explanation for the current malaise of the "politics of ecology" is that we increasingly find ourselves negotiating "technonatural" time/spaces. International contributors map the political ecologies of our technonatural present and indicate possible paths for technonatural futures.
