This book engages with, and contests, the 'new sociology of nature'. It moves beyond existing debates by presenting new social theory and working across current fields of interest, addressing the debate on new genetics and genomics, taking human biology seriously, and the issues of interdisciplinary that are likely to arise in longer term attempts to work across the social and natural world. "Nature and Sociology" will be of great interest to students of a variety of disciplines including Sociology and Social Science, Human Geography, Social and Biological Anthropology, and the Natural Sciences.
