[A] far-reaching and deeply engaging look at…issues in international environmental law.(Luke Boughen International Environmental Agreements)
This work…is an excellent compilation of case studies…to 'illustrate how a globalized world is fundamentally altering the environmental justice terrain.' The examples are unique and engaging. Highly recommended.
With valuable practical and theoretical contributions, the global scope of this volume is admirable. The book well serves its primary audience: scholars and development professionals interested in justice-oriented dimensions of globalization and environmental inequality.(Human Ecology)
Carmin and Agyeman have edited an excellent and broad-ranging collection on the relationship between global practices and local conditions. The contributors offer new empirical studies of environmental injustices and resistance, from South Africa to China and Fiji to Ecuador. Together, they advance our understanding of the experience and practice of environmental justice in important new transnational directions. Comprehensive and innovative.(David Schlosberg, Professor of Politics and International Relations, University of Sydney)
Global production and consumption chains are vastly increasing the distance between those who benefit from and those who have to deal with the impacts of mining, disposal, and industrial pollution. Meanwhile, global inequality is growing and morphing, and institutions are struggling to cope. Carmin and Agyeman's collection represents a substantial contribution to our understanding of this new 'spatial injustice.'(J. Timmons Robert, Director, Center for Environmental Studies, Brown University, and author of A Climate of Injustice)
This book is a shining example of engaged scholarship. Carmin and Agyeman aim to advance our understanding of, and ability to act upon, environmental inequalities around the world, and they achieve this twofold objective nicely. In my field of urban and regional planning, the role of institutions that the book highlights is increasingly key, and I see this book as a solid contribution to my field as well as to sociology, political science, anthropology, international studies, ethnic studies, and environmental health studies.(Keith Pezzoli Urban Studies and Planning Program, University of California, San Diego)
