              The Handbook of Environmental Justice presents an overview of the diverse, rapidly growing body of research on issues of environmental justice and injustice. With contributions from over 90 leading authors it is an essential resource both for newcomers to the research and for exp...erienced scholars and practitioners. It provides an extensive and cutting-edge overview of the history, theory, and methods of interdisciplinary environmental justice research, along with discussions of current debates, controversies, and questions. The volume orients itself towards presenting, reviewing, and assessing the full range of academic research by explicitly addressing interdisciplinarity, transdisciplinarity, and engaged research. Instead of adopting a narrow regional focus, it tackles substantive issues and presents perspectives from across the world. The volume features in-depth discussions of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methodological approaches alike and includes contributions from social and natural scientists, as well as humanists with different approaches to theorizing on the topic. The chapters examine the roots of environmental justice in activism, lay out the key theories and approaches, and consider the many different substantive issues that have been the subject of activism, empirical research and policy development. It considers both the global scale of environmental justice activity and specific regional profiles and concerns covering political and cultural systems from different parts of the world. The text aims not to simply review the state of the art, but to propose new conceptual frameworks and directions for research, policy, and practice. The handbook provides a detailed overview of this incredibly rich, varied topic by a wide range of leading scholars from multiple disciplines and different parts of the world. The book is an essential guide and reference not only for researchers engaged with environmental justice, but also for undergraduate and gradu

              Environmental justice has increasingly become part of the language of environmental activism, political debate, academic research and policy making around the world. It raises questions about how the environment impacts on different people's lives. Does pollution follow the poor?... Are some communities far more vulnerable to the impacts of flooding or climate change than others? Are the benefits of access to green space for all, or only for some? Do powerful voices dominate environmental decisions to the exclusion of others? This book focuses on such questions and the complexities involved in answering them. It explores the diversity of ways in which environment and social difference are intertwined and how the justice of their interrelationship matters. It has a distinctive international perspective, tracing how the discourse of environmental justice has moved around the world and across scales to include global concerns, and examining research, activism and policy development in the US, the UK, South Africa and other countries. The widening scope and diversity of what has been positioned within an environmental justice 'frame' is also reflected in chapters that focus on waste, air quality, flooding, urban greenspace and climate change. In each case, the basis for evidence of inequalities in impacts, vulnerabilities and responsibilities is examined, asking questions about the knowledge that is produced, the assumptions involved and the concepts of justice that are being deployed in both academic and political contexts. Environmental Justice offers a wide ranging analysis of this rapidly evolving field, with compelling examples of the processes involved in producing inequalities and the challenges faced in advancing the interests of the disadvantaged. It provides a critical framework for understanding environmental justice in various spatial and political contexts, and will be of interest to those studying Environmental Studies, Geography, Politics and Sociology.
