Synopses & Reviews
From "Cancer Alley," a strip along the Mississippi River, to Triana, Alabama, known as the unhealthiest town in America, to Native American reservations, an insidious form of racism has spread across the country. Unequal Protection: Environmental Justice & Communities of Color offers compelling evidence that pollution disproportionately impacts communities of color, subjecting citizens to toxic insults of the deadliest kind. Collecting the work of local activists, journalists, and educators, this volume is edited by Dr. Robert Bullard, one of the leaders in the nationwide fight for environmental justice.
"Unequal Protection must be applauded for the breadth and diversity with which it has surveyed the phenomenon of environmental racism."--San Francisco Chronicle
