Reviews

"Landscapes of Writing in Chicano Literature is a groundbreaking and innovative collection of essays focusing on landscape, space, and Chicano/a ecological literary expressions. The essays included in this volume are written by highly respected and well-known scholars as well as up-and-coming brilliant new voices from Europe, Latin America, and the United States. The articles are original, intelligently written in accessible language, and thought-provoking - bringing to light issues and concerns related to the environment. They make excellent use of sophisticated ecological critical theories as they pertain to Chicana and Chicano literary works." - María Herrera-Sobek, Associate Vice Chancellor and Professor of Chicana/o Studies at UCSB, USA and author of Celebrating Latino Folklore: An Encyclopedia of Cultural Traditions

'A most timely contribution to the developing field of Chicano/a ecocriticism.' - Manuel M. Martín-Rodríguez, Professor, University of California, Merced, USA
