From the Back Cover
In this cutting-edge volume, leading scholars examine a diverse range of environmental inequalities from around the world and introduce a pluralistic agenda for critical environmental justice research. Spaces of Environmental Justice
explores novel theoretical approaches and neglected spaces of inequality and shows how far the field has moved beyond its original focus on uneven distributions of pollution in the USA.
The book also considers the influence of critical geographical and social theory on environmental justice studies. A range of possibilities for future research directions are identified, as are the challenges involved in investigating and pursuing environmental justice at a time of rapid economic and environmental change.
