About this book

Using vivid case studies from around the world, it shows how liberal rights can include both ecological and social conditions for collective decision making - environmentalist goals and social justice can be achieved together.

'A fine book.' Timothy O'Riordan, Professor of Environmental Science, University of East Anglia, and Associate Director, Centre for Social and Economic Research on the Global Environment. 'This is a sustainability discourse that is more self-aware and prepared to engage with the very real choices about how we ought to live, and to tackle the most enduring obstacles to ecological integrity and social justice on a global scale.' Urban Policy and Research
