DEEP BLUE: CRITICAL REFLECTIONS ON NATURE RELIGION AND WATER
Eds. Sylvie Shaw and Andrew Francis, Equinox, London.

From oceans to rivers, water sources to water resources, this edited volume traverses the academic realms of nature religion, anthropology, mythology, resource management, psychology, sociology and indigenous studies highlighting religious and eco-social discourses around water, aquatic ecosystems and conservation. It explores dimensions of the human relationship with river, sea and pool to further develop understandings of the interrelationships between spiritual practice, academic nature religion discourse and environmental concern.

Contributors to the book are among the leading writers and thinkers in the field: Bron Taylor, Michael York, Douglas Ezzy, Susan Power Bratton, Vivianne Crowley, Veronica Strang, John Bradley, Katerina Teaiwa, Melissa K. Nelson, Dieter Gerten, David Groenfeldt, Penny Bernard and Meg Ferris. Introduction by Graham Harvey.
