ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Special thanks to Tim Hayward and Andrew Sayer. They read through the whole manuscript in detail and made a number of invaluable comments. Thanks too for suggestions from Janet Collett, Caroline New, Jenneth Parker, John Parry, Graham Sharp, Neil Stammers and Bron Szerszynski. Ted Benton, Luke Martell and Kate Soper have, over the years, provided particular kinds of assistance. The staff of Sussex University’s unique Mass-Observation Archive have been especially helpful. John Urry waited patiently for the manuscript and made a number of very useful suggestions when it finally arrived. David Cocks kept body and soul together. Finally, many thanks to Anna for all kinds of support and encouragement.

The University of Sussex has been a continuous source of assistance. It provided me with a term’s leave to work on this book. Furthermore, it has long been an excellent setting for interdisciplinary research and teaching. This book has largely stemmed from an undergraduate course in the School of Social Sciences called ‘Health, Food and Nature’.

Longer-term debts will become clear in the book. Suffice to say here that these acknowledgements were written on the centenary of the day Engels’s ashes were scattered over the sea at Beachy Head, near where I live.
