Scholars of literature, history, and geography offer eight commissioned essays on John Ruskin's (1819-1900) environmental concerns and their relevance today. Ruskin in mostly know as a Victorian English art critic and social theorist, but he also was a keen observer of the natural world and the impact of industrialism and urbanization on it. He argued against railways, tourism, river pollution, and acid rain; and for maintaining ancient buildings and improving sanitation in the slums. Distributed in the US by St. Martin's Press.
