This pioneering study is the first full-length treatment of feminism and the environment in children's literature. Drawing on the history, philosophy and ethics of ecofeminism, it examines the ways in which post-apocalyptic landscapes in young adult fiction reflect contemporary attitudes towards environmental crisis and human responsibility.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The six main chapters chart a winding path that allows Curry's discursive trajectory to constantly dip into and out of her chosen novels at will, thereby casting a critical eye over topics such as climate change, posthumanism, spirituality, social justice, ecophobia, identity politics, globalisation and the neoliberal hegemonic and patriarchal power structures that exist to dominate human beings and the environment alike Curry's approach in this book allows for interesting and individual readings of particular sections in the primary texts she discusses.' - Anthony Pavlik, Lulea University of Technology, Sweden
