"Environmental injustice can only be redressed if activists, citizens, lawyers, governments and others have the concepts, mechanisms and tools to make the world a better place. This book is a one-stop-shop for anyone who wants an advanced introduction to environmental justice. It attends to the substantive, procedural and practical complexities involved while, through powerful argument and example, showing that injustices can and should be tackled from the local scale to the global."Professor Noel Castree, University of Wollongong, Australia "This impressive collection provides a comprehensive overview of Environmental Justice Studies with a stunning sweep of theoretical approaches that include critical race theory, social movement theory, political economy, feminist theory, science and technology studies, and political philosophy; diverse and creative methodological approaches; and a broad array of empirical topics and geographical contexts. In emphasizing the roots of environmental inequalities, diverse visions of justice, and various strategies for change, this essential resource will help scholars, students, activists, policymakers, and others help fight for and secure a more just world."Associate Professor Jill Lindsey Harrison, Department of Sociology, University of Colorado-Boulder, USA
