Insect Theatre by Tim Edgar( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The result of Tim Edgar photographing the insect life in his home for three years and examining through a close up lens the creatures that were sharing his domestic space, the book provides a uniquely personal view of the insects and the performances they play out. Through macro photography Edgar is able to capture the fragile nature of the insects and the conflict in the chaotic web they reside in. The photographs are contextualised in the essays by anthropologist Hugh Raffles who discusses the life and death situations in the cobweb and the chaos in the domestic insect world. Close observation of natural science is paired with a sense of intrigue and wonder

In Amazonia : a natural history by Hugh Raffles( Recording )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[In this book, the author] shows us ... the world's last great wilderness has been transformed again and again by human activity. [He] brings to life an Amazon whose allure and reality lie as much, or more, in what people have made of it as in what nature has wrought. It casts new light on centuries of encounter while describing the dramatic remaking of a sweeping landscape by residents of one small community in the Brazilian Amazon. Combining richly textured ethnographic research and lively historical analysis, [he] weaves a fascinating story that changes our understanding of this region and challenges us to rethink what we mean by "nature." [He also] draws from a wide range of material to demonstrate - in contrast to the tendency to downplay human agency in the Amazon - that the region is an outcome of the intimately intertwined histories of humans and nonhumans. He moves between a detailed narrative that analyzes the production of scientific knowledge about Amazonia over the centuries and an absorbing account of the extraordinary transformations to the fluvial landscape carried out over the past forty years by the inhabitants of Igarap Guariba, four hours downstream from the nearest city ... A natural history of a different kind, [the book] shows how humans, animals, rivers, and forests all participate in the making of a region that remains today at the center of debates in environmental politics.-Dust jacket
