About this book

John Ruskin is best known as an art critic and social theorist, but he was also an acute observer and recorder of the natural environment, and the impact of Victorian industrialisation and urbanisation on it. This important work examines a wide variety of environmental issues in John Ruskin's work and argues that his prophetic writings speak to our generation as much as his own.
