Environmental Justice in Latin America: Problems, Promise, and Practice (Urban and Industrial Environments)by David V. Carruthers
Synopses & Reviews
This optimistic, accessible, and wide-ranging book examines environmental justice—which focuses on inclusive processes of environmental decision-making for local communities—in the United States, United Kingdom, Sweden, South Korea, China, Bolivia, and Cuba. Karen Bell discusses environmental issues as they relate to a number of other topics, including race, class, industrialization, and politics, with a particular focus on the role of capitalism. Based on over one hundred interviews with politicians, experts, activists, and citizens of these countries, this compelling analysis will be invaluable to anyone engaged in addressing the most urgent environmental and social issues of our time.
Scholars and activists investigate the emergence of a distinctively Latin American environmental justice movement, offering analysis and case studies that illustrate the connections between popular environmental mobilization and social justice in the region.

Environmental justice concerns form an important part of popular environmental movements in many countries.
