The essays in this book, brought together by a leading expert on the work of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, are a wide range of critical approaches to one of the most acclaimed, memorable, and visually striking animated films ever made. Both first-time viewers and long-time fans will appreciate these clear, elegant, and well-argued explorations of Princess Mononoke's themes, production history, and reception around the world.
