Book Description

May 3, 2009 0199562482 978-0199562480
This book will appeal to anyone interested in environmental politics, environmental movements, and justice theory. The basic task of this book is to explore what, exactly, is meant by 'justice' in definitions of environmental and ecological justice. It examines how the term is used in both self-described environmental justice movements and in theories of environmental and ecological justice. The central argument is that a theory and practice of environmental justice necessarily includes distributive conceptions of justice, but must also embrace notions of justice based in recognition, capabilities, and participation. Throughout, the goal is the development of a broad, multi-faceted, yet integrated notion of justice that can be applied to both relations regarding environmental risks in human populations and relations between human communities and non-human nature.

Editorial Reviews

Review


"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

3.0 out of 5 stars Ehh.. August 19, 2011
By Emily
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.
