Politics of Nature How to Bring the Sciences into Democracy. By Bruno Latour. Harvard University Press, Cambridge, MA, 2004. 319 pp. $55, £35.95, €50.70. ISBN 0-674-01289-5. Paper, $24.95, £16.95, €23.10. ISBN 0-674-01347-6. Translated by Catherine Porter ().

Rejecting a dichotomy between nature and society, Latour argues for a "political ecology," one that would provide the basis for tackling the problems of environmental damage.
