Neil Smith also distinguishes between various theories of nature, how society has come to see nature as external to man. He ties this in later with Marx's theories on spatial relations and 'production of nature'. Good companion to David Harvey's Urban Experience or Condition of Postmodernism, who incorporates Marx's theories in application to space.
Slightly difficult, and abstract, but well worth the effort.
