A thought-provoking argument links the chapters of this edited volume... Just Sustainabilities contains enough interesting material to make this a useful introduction to the issues, and a worthwhile addition to reading lists, particularly for upper level undergraduate and graduate courses.(Environment and Planning C: Government and Policy)
Just Sustainabilities: Development in an Unequal World does a remarkable job of presenting the theories and challenges that exist practically and philosophically with regard to environmental and social justice and sustainability.(Nicole M. Smith Culture and Agriculture)
This book provides an integrated approach to the questions of sustainable development, environmental justice and equity.(Oxfam)
The authors have undertaken the important task of linking research, activism, and discourses around environmental justice and sustainable development. This is a crucial project because of the real divisions that exist between proponents of each vision. The book is quite original and well researched, and the range of the case studies, literatures employed, and theoretical perspectives chosen is impressive.(David Naguib Pellow, Ethnic Studies Department, University of California, San Diego, author of Garbage Wars: The Struggle for Environmental Justice in Chicago)
Just Sustainabilities is a significant work. This diverse and sophisticated compilation offers both documentation and trenchant analysis of the global links among environmental degradation, racial oppression, and economic exploitation. It's also a compelling road map for addressing them in a sustainable fashion.(Luke Cole, Center on Race, Poverty and the Environment)
