Editorial Reviews

Review

"Drawing deftly on scholarship in urban sociology, geography, and American studies, Julie Sze presents an astute and generative analysis of recent struggles for environmental justice in New York. At a time when neoliberalism and privatization increasingly impose new hazards and injuries on communities of color, Noxious New York reveals how activist groups have been able to develop an entirely new calculus of environmental risk and reward through the creation of a 'street science' that blends the expert knowledge of researchers with the experiences of community residents. This is a book that makes major contributions to our understanding of urban inequality, the environment, and contemporary culture."--George Lipsitz, Department of Black Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara, author of *American Studies in a Moment of Danger*

About the Author

Julie Sze is an Associate Professor of American Studies at University of California, Davis, and the director of the Environmental Justice Project for UC Davis's John Muir Institute for the Environment.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sze's ph.d. thesis suffers from her own overly grand sense of the import of her subject, her confused theoretical framework and the lack of the kind of editorial oversight that her thesis advisers owed her.
