Summary "Explaining Our World offers a rationale and philosophy for environmental interpretation, suggesting that its aims are particularly relevant in an age when specialization has distanced many people from direct experience of the way the world works. Issues discussed include the aims and motivation for interpretation through to the means of communication, subject research, professional training and examining interpretation in the future."--BOOK JACKET
