About this book

Scholars and practitioners assess the tactics and strategies, rhetoric, organisational structure, and resource base of the environmental justice movement, gauging its successes and failures and future prospects. For almost 30 years, the environmental justice movement (EJM) has challenged the environmental and health inequities that are often linked with social inequities, calling attention to the disproportionate burden of pollution borne by low-income and minority communities.
The successes of the movement have been celebrated, and the EJM's impact on the direction of environmental policy, research, and activism is widely acknowledged. But the literature on environmental justice lacks a real assessment of the movement's effectiveness. This book provides just such a critical appraisal, examining EJM's tactics and strategies, rhetoric, organisational structure, and resource base. With chapters by both scholars and activists, the book links theory and practice with the aim of contributing to a more effective movement.

Power, Justice, and the Environment looks first at the progress, failures, and successes of the EJM over the years, and includes a comparison of EJM with the Civil Rights movement that draws some provocative conclusions. The book next focuses on the development of new strategies and cultural perspectives, considering, among other topics, alternative models for community mobilisation and organisational structure. Finally, the book examines the effect of globalisation on environmental inequality and how the environmental justice movement can address transnational environmental injustices.

Media reviews
Power, Justice, and the Environment is a noteworthy addition to the environmental justice discourse. Pellow and Brulle provide telling insights into the causes and persistence of environmental inequality in the U.S. and abroad and chart a course for the environmental justice movement in the new century. --Robert D. Bullard, Clark Atlanta University, author of The Quest for Environmental Justice "The environmental justice movement today is at a crossroads. This book's analysis of the movement's problems and potentials should make it into a stronger and more influential force for environmental change." --J. Craig Jenkins, Professor of Sociology and Political Science, Ohio State University, and Faculty Associate, Mershon Center for International Security "Pellow and Brulle offer a multisocket 'tool kit for an ecologically sustainable and socially just future.' The book's scope is impressive, analyzing the internal tensions of EJ movements as well as the coercions and seductions of them by national and global institutions." --Allan Schnaiberg, Professor of Sociology and Faculty Associate, Institute for Policy Research, Northwestern University
