“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

It's called “blurbing” but if you study the history of the book, the blurb is the description on the jacket, whereas a puff is an endorsement. I'm happy with the ones I've done this year so far:

Graham Harman, Bells and Whistles.
Daniel Tiffany, My Silver Planet (on kitsch).
Anat Pick and Guinevere Narraway, eds., Screening Nature.
