One of the main features of the contemporary environmental crisis is that no one has a clear idea of what is going on. The author uses an extension of Marx's theory of alienation to explain why people find it so difficult to relate their different knowledges of the natural and social world.
He argues that nevertheless it is possible to relate these to the abstractions of ecological discourse. Emancipation can come only through embracing science and rationality rather than rejecting them and, in the process, humanity as well as the non-human world will benefit.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Peter Dickens' new contribution to environmental sociology, "Reconstructing Nature belongs to a category of innovative analysis that transcends the old ideological battles between the proponents of Marx's humanism and those of his historicism, looking instead to reconcile these aspects of Marx's work in his naturalism Dickens, like others who have pioneered green Marxist theory, is to be commended for his courage in standing against the tide of idealist constructionism to consider the dialectical relationship between the historical, material world and our ideas about it."
-Eliza Darling, The City University of New York, Graduate School and University Center, "Journal of Political Ecology
