  • Environmental Justice is one of the most important human rights challenge today. It combats the targeting people of color and poor people for the burdens of environmental degradation and pollution. Case studies from various parts of the world explore themes that include: historical and theoretical perspectives on Environmental Justice; the persistence of models of domination, exploitation and discrimination; gender implications of environmental degradation; violence and militarization; corporate globalization, climate change and the tragedy of Katrina. The Environmental Justice Movement represents a combination of academic, political, legal and grass-roots activism against environmental and social injustices. 
  • "Professor Steady has anthologized an excellent collection of articles illustrating the scope and range of environmental justice concerns. In these well-written and researched articles, we are shown that the need for environmental justice activism, for those persons who are poor, gendered, or of color, is a global concern. This volume makes it clear that while the environmental Justice movement has its roots in the environmental and civil rights history of the United States - the problems of environmental neglect prevalent in the United States has been and continues to be a global problem. Drawing together research on environmental justice history, theory and praxis, coupled with powerful case studies, including the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, this book is highly recommended to environmental scholars and activists or anyone interested in understanding the value of environmental justice from a global perspective. Environmental Justice in the New Millennium: Global Perspectives on Race, Ethnicity and Human Rights is a needed and welcome addition to the Environmental Justice literature. Professor Steady is to be commended." - Bill E. Lawson, University of Memphis.
