This second edition of Postcolonial Ecocriticism, a book foundational for its field, has been updated to consider recent developments in the area such as environmental humanities and animal studies.

Graham Huggan and Helen Tiffin examine transverse relations between humans, animals and the environment across a wide range of postcolonial literary texts and also address key issues such as global warming, food security, human over-population in the context of animal extinction, queer ecology, and the connections between postcolonial and disability theory.

Considering the postcolonial first from an environmental and then a zoocritical perspective, the book looks at:Narratives of development in postcolonial writingEntitlement, belonging and the pastoralColonial 'asset stripping' and the Christian missionThe politics of eating and the representation of cannibalismAnimality and spiritualitySentimentality and anthropomorphismThe changing place of humans and animals in a 'posthuman' world.

With a new preface written specifically for this edition and an annotated list of suggestions for further reading, Postcolonial Ecocriticism offers a comprehensive and fully up-to-date introduction to a rapidly expanding field.
