"Schlosberg's definition of environmental justice is theoretically grounded and empirically informed, resulting in a thorough and nuanced account... [T]he book is essential reading for researchers and students working on environmental justice, and will be of interest to justice theorists more generally... Schlosberg's account of environmental justice...is definitive."--Perspectives on Politics
"David Schlosberg'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.... Defining 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 and International Affairs
