In light of increasing evidence demonstrating the irreparable damage humans have inflicted on the planet, some have adopted a defeatist attitude toward environmental crises. "Local Environmental Movements: A Comparative Study of the United States and Japan" illustrates how local groups in both Japan and the United States are refusing to surrender the earth to a depleted and polluted fate. Drawing on a series of case studies, a team of scholars from across the world discusses the efforts by grassroots organizations to promote sustainable development that respects the need for environmental protection and cultural preservation.
This book does a great job of illustrating how social movements negotiate the local, regional, national, and international forces that shape environmental conflicts.--Shawn Banasick, Kent State University
