About this book

Environmental Justice is one of the most important human rights challenges today, referring to inequitable environmental burdens born by groups such as racial minorities, residents of economically disadvantaged areas, or residents of developing nations. In this book, case studies from various parts of the world explore themes that include: historical and theoretical perspectives on Environmental Justice; the persistence of models of domination, exploitation and discrimination; gender implications of environmental degradation; violence and militarization; corporate globalization, climate change and the tragedy of Katrina. The Environmental Justice Movement represents a combination of academic, political, legal and grass-roots activism against environmental and social injustices.
