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."
