Greg Garrard's animated and accessible volume traces the development of the movement and explores the concepts which have most occupied ecocritics, including: * pollution* wilderness* apocalypse* dwelling* animals* earth.Featuring an invaluable glossary of terms and suggestions for further reading, this is the first student-friendly introduction to one of the newest and most exciting trends in literary and cultural studies.
