Justice in the Sea of Corruption: Nausicaä as Ecological Jurisprudence

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In a few short centuries, industrial civilization had spread from the western fringes of Eurasia to sprawl across the face of the planet – plundering the soil of its riches, fouling the air, and remolding life-forms at will. Just a thousand years after its foundation this gargantuan industrial society had already peaked; ahead lay abrupt and violent decline. The cities burned, welling up as clouds of poison in the war remembered as the Seven Days of Fire. The complex and sophisticated technological superstructure was lost, and almost all the surface of the Earth was transformed into a sterile wasteland. Industrial civilization was never rebuilt as mankind lived on through the long twilight years.1
