This brief overview of environmental justice is the first of its kind in Canada, and a perfect introduction to the topic for courses in sociology, environmental studies, human development, politics, or geography. Combining multiple perspectives that include GIS and technology applications, theories of representation, media analysis, as well as first-person narratives, the authors provide a rich examination of the issues.

“This is an engaging and compelling book which draws on activist struggles and scholarly work to examine environmental justice issues in the Canadian context. It offers theoretical frameworks, practical tools, and real-world cases to help readers make sense of, and intervene in, the world around them.”

— Pablo Bose, University of Vermont/York University
