REVIEW: The Broken Promise of Agricultural Progress by Cameron Muir

Barbara Holloway


Though not ecocriticism, this is an important work for anyone working anywhere on representation of the inter-being of natural and cultivated worlds. It shows the health of a bioregion changing through social, political, natural, economic and scientific influences from local, national and global sources. Muir’s primary focus is the dynamics of ‘agricultural progress’, a concept that so often results in damaging exploitation of earth and ecosystems.
