Praise For Lawn People: How Grasses, Weeds, and Chemicals Make Us Who We Are

"[Robbins] offers a clever exploration of the political ecology and actor network theory, and a sharp insight into the cynicism of capitalism in the form of the chemical industry. That is a lot for a slim, nicely illustrated and well-written book to achieve, but it does it with style and intelligence…. [T]he book is readable and wide-ranging in its arguments…its analysis is relevant wherever suburban values extend…. This book should be widely read and discussed."
