Opinion

From Library Staff

List - Marine Garbage by: multcolib_tamaf May 14, 2014

One-of-a-kind gorgeous, if disturbing, book. Explores the relationship between humans and the ocean in a contemporary culture of con­sumption, offers an international perspective on a pressing environmental problem.
