In Environmental Justice, leading thinkers of the environmental justice movement take a direct look at the failure of "top down" public policy to effectively deal with issues of environmental equity.

The book provides a startling look at pressing social and environmental problems and charts a course for future action. Among the topics considered are:

  • The history of the social justice movement.
  • The role of the professional in working with community groups.
  • Methods of dealing with environmental problems at the international level.
  • Participatory national policy for environmental education, energy, industrial development, and housing and sustainable development.

Contributors include Robert Bullard, Deeohn Ferris, Tom B.K. Goldtooth, David Hahn-Baker, Beverly Wright, Ivette Perfecto, Patrick West, and others.


“Environmental Justice tells the truth. This excellent collection of essays covers virtually every issue related to environmental justice and should arm policymakers with important information in the struggle for environmental justice.”
-- John Lewis, U.S. Congressman (D-GA)

“An invaluable resource for individuals and groups working to rebuild safer, healthier, and sustainable cities, based on respect for Nature and for one another.”
-- Grace Lee Boggs, Ph.D., Detroit activist and writer
