Bucking a bias that insists on environmental communication as a crisis discipline that justifies an incoherent activism and smug moralism, in Critical Environmental Communication Murdoch Stephens advocates a return to thinking and theory. In a sustained and thoughtful engagement with such provocative thinkers as Latour, Zizek, Morton, and Sloterdijk, Stephens forces us to reconsider the grounds of our thinking and activism. As Stephens' vital intervention argues, theory is not a necessary detour but the way itself that enables a thinking and acting that exceeds a mindless activism that pursues the media-amplified crisis du jour. -- Kevin DeLuca, The University of Utah
By bringing four notable and provocative theorists into the orbit of environmental communication, Stephens's work will reinvigorate discussions among environmental communication scholars about the possibilities for critique and critical scholarship. -- Steve Schwarze, University of Montana
