Editorial Reviews


"David Schlosber's Defining Environmental Justice is political theory at its best, providing an invaluable review of the contemporary literature, subverting traditional political categories and distinctions, and suggesting new directions for politics and policy... "efining Environmental Justice breaks important ground not only in advancing political theory's engagement with nature but in crafting a theoretical and political framework that draws together moral consideration for nonhuman nature with environmental justice concerns... [Schlosberg] offers a powerful critique of liberal theories of justice and their often singular focus on distribution, offering a more inclusive notion of justice that embraces recognition, capabilities, and participatory democracy."--Ethics & International Affiars

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book's contents were very dull and difficult to read. I had to purchase it for a class in college and while it was fairly informative, I felt that I had to work very hard to decipher the author's main points because of the general writing style. I wouldn't recommend this book in particular.
