Adding nuance to a global debate, esteemed scholars from Europe, North America, and Latin America portray the attempts in Chicano literature to provide an answer to the environmental crisis. This volume carefully presents different types of physical, ideological, symbolical, and spiritual landscapes represented in Chicano novels, short stories, drama, poetry, films, and documentaries from diverse ecocritical perspectives. Ultimately, this book bridges a gap between the fields of Chicano Studies and Ecocriticism, and draws parallels between the discrimination Chicanos face and the global attack on the environment.
