Reviews

"Hamilton and Curran's concept of `Just Green Enough' has become a rallying cry for academics and activists trying to decouple environmental clean-up from high-end residential and commercial development. The cases in this timely and excellent book illuminate this goal, offering us hope for a transition toward more just sustainabilities." - Julian Agyeman, Professor of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning, Tufts University "This is an essential book demonstrating the need for a new ecological, political, and social imagination to place interactional, reparative, distributional, and participative justice at the center of green city planning. Only through transformative green planning and creative lasting alliances will green interventions be public goods rather than environmental privileges." - Isabelle Anguelovski, ICREA Research Professor and Director, Barcelona Lab for Urban Environmental Justice and Sustainability, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona "In 2012, Curran and Hamilton came up with `Just Green Enough,' a welcome vision for environmentally-minded urban development that foregrounded social justice and equity. Six years later, the concept's originators bring us this provocative look at the pitfalls and promises of JGE strategies, offering both sobering assessments and hopeful ways forward." - Melissa Checker, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Environmental Psychology, the CUNY Graduate Center "As cities across the world are `going green' through revitalization projects geared toward resilience and sustainability, they struggle with a major challenge: avoiding displacement and disenfranchisement associated with gentrification. This refreshing, provocative volume brings together leading scholars who dare to move beyond critique, by exploring and proposing strategies and solutions." - Ryan Holifield, Associate Professor of Geography, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee "Just Green Enough brings passion, imagination, along with some redemption to the sustainable development paradox. With a global reach, the book's contributors eruditely reveal important insights and examples of diverse social relations that engender positive urban environmental change. A must read for students concerned with progressive social change." - Robert Krueger, Director, Environmental and Sustainability Studies, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
