“Sturgeon’s book creates the field of ‘environmental cultural studies’ through her intersectional analysis, which merges the perspectives of environmental justice, ecofeminism, and environmentalism.” —Greta Gaard, author of The Nature of Home: Taking Root in a Place
“If environmentalists—and by this I mean all of us who live on the planet and rely upon nature for our very survival—can take these criticisms to heart and try to imagine a more sustainable social and ecological future, then this book’s seemingly grim assessments will have paid off.” —Scott Slovic, author of Going Away to Think: Engagement, Retreat, and Ecocritical Responsibility
