In his study of captivity narratives, Kyhl Lyndgaard argues that these accounts have influenced land-use policy and environmental attitudes at the same time that they reveal the complex relationship between ethnicity, landscape, and authorship. In connecting these themes, Lyndgaard offers readers an alternative environmental literature, one that is dependent on an understanding of nature as home rather than as a place of temporary retreat. He examines three captivity narratives written in the 1820s and 1830s - A Narrative of the Life of Mrs. Mary Jemison, The Captivity and Adventures of John Tanner, and Life of Black Hawk -all of which engage with the Jacksonian policy of Indian removal and resist tropes of the so-called Vanishing Indian. As Lyndgaard shows, the authors and the editors with whom they collaborated often saw their stories as a plea for environmental and social justice. At the same time, audiences have embraced them for their vision of a more inclusive and less exploitative American society than was proffered by the rhetoric of Manifest Destiny. Their legacy is that while environmental and social justice has been slow in fulfilment, their continued popularity testifies to the fact that the struggle for justice has never been ceded.

هذه الرواية هى أول رواية بارزة تعبر عن تلك الثورة الفكرية الشاملة، وهي قصة مُقتضبة، ممتعة في قراءتها، وتعلق في الذاكرة إلى الأبد. تدور أحداثها حول رجل إنجليزي ينحدر من أصول نبيلة يُدعى إدوارد برينديك، تسوقه الأقدار إلى جزيرة بالمحيط الهادئ لا يسكنها سوى عالم تشريح الحيوانات الحيَّة دكتور مورو (ومساعده مونتجومري)، بالإضافة إلى عدد من أنصاف البشر الذين استحدثهم مورو بالوسائل الجراحية وغيرها من التدخلات في الحياة الحيوانية. وبعد تجسيد الرواية في العديد من الأفلام، واقتباس كتاب آخرين لها، صار اسم الدكتور الآثم رمزًا لسادية مشرِّح الحيوانات الحية وللحيوانيَّة المبتكَرة.

This four-volume edition of the Arabic text of the Journey of the Moroccan traveller Ibn Battuta (1304-68/9), with a French translation, was published in 1853-8. In 1325, Ibn Battuta, who came from a family of Islamic jurists in Tangier, set out to make the pilgrimage to Mecca - the beginning of a journey that would last for twenty-four years and take him as far as China. In Volume 2, he leaves Najaf and heads for Persia, exploring Isfahan and Shiraz before returning to Baghdad. Next he goes north, as far as modern Turkey, before performing a second pilgrimage to Mecca. From Jeddah, he sails to Yemen and down the coast of Africa as far as modern-day Tanzania. After a third visit to Mecca he heads north as far as the Crimea and Astrakhan, whence he travels to Constantinople in the retinue of a Byzantine princess, before heading east again.
