Words for a Small Planet is an important book that makes connections between traditional forms of eco-criticism and emerging, non-Western settings, texts, and frameworks. Anyone who studies and writes about literature and environment in the 21st Century needs to add this book to their collection! (Stephen P. Depoe, professor and head, Department of Communication, University of Cincinnati)
