About this title

Synopsis:

Ecocriticism has matured beyond nature writing, beyond writing about nature. The essays in this volume look at the broader cultural, historical, sociological, and psychological implications of ecology in written, visual, and sound culture. In keeping with our sense of a global community, these essays are representative of international scholarship on ecology and the environment, and display the range of insight of which this criticism is capable. Focusing on popular culture, this volume is in the vanguard of our collective reflections on the directions in which our various societies are going.

Words for a Small Planet is the fulfillment of a life-long desire to be involved in the study of ecology and ecosystems, and is the outcome of a visit to Saudi Arabia where she saw the Arab Spring in progress, not only across the bridge in Bahrain, but in the homes and hearts of Saudi women: she is proud to bring her editing and collecting skills to the project of giving voice to these and other cultures in the ecosystem called Earth.
