Environmental Justice in a Moment of Danger, Paperback / softback Book

Environmental Justice in a Moment of Danger Paperback / softback

Part of the American Studies Now: Critical Histories of the Present series

Description

"Let this book immerse you in the many worlds of environmental justice."-Naomi Klein We are living in a precarious environmental and political moment.

In the United States and in the world, environmental injustices have manifested across racial and class divides in devastatingly disproportionate ways.

What does this moment of danger mean for the environment and for justice?

What can we learn from environmental justice struggles? Environmental Justice in a Moment of Danger examines mobilizations and movements, from protests at Standing Rock to activism in Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

Environmental justice movements fight, survive, love, and create in the face of violence that challenges the conditions of life itself.

Exploring dispossession, deregulation, privatization, and inequality, this book is the essential primer on environmental justice, packed with cautiously hopeful stories for the future.
