Book Review: "Alien Ocean: Anthropological Voyages in Microbial Seas" by Stefan Helmreich

University of California Press, "Alien Ocean: Anthropological Voyages in Microbial Seas." 2009 via

Jerome Whitington, Postdoctoral Fellow at the Climate Justice Research Project and Visiting Fellow at the Dickie Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth College, reviews Alien Ocean: Anthropological Voyages in Microbial Seas by Stefan Helmreich (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2009. 464 pages).

Review excerpt:

"In addition to laying out some of the best of what current critical thinking might have to offer on the topic, Helmreich has given us a book that is both a pleasure to read and will serve to showcase important arguments to a wide audience allergic to jargon and the minutiae of theory hashing."
