"Discourses of the Environment represents an important contribution to addressing the links between poststructuralism and the environment. The divergent analyses are engaging and should provide material for debate and inquiry. Environmental theorists and practitioners will find this book of benefit, although the novelty of this intellectual effort should diminish as scholars recognise the important links between Foucault and nature."

'In Discourses of the Environment Eric Darier brings together nine scholars from a variety of disciplines who are all working on environmental issues from the broad perspective provided by the work of the late Michel Foucault. The result is an important and challenging contribution to the understanding of the environment as a central problem of modern societies and as an object of study across the natural and human sciences.' -- James Tully, University of Victoria
'Darier's Discourses of the Environment makes a major contributors to a debate that really deserves to be broader than it has been. Bringing the breakthrough political theory of Michel Foucault to the environmental movement, the book is so compelling that it makes one wonder why such an approach has been so rare.' --Bill Chaloupka, University of Montana
