Description

This revised and updated edition of "Environmental Justice" addresses the legal and social aspects of this important and rapidly evolving field, as well as its relation to sustainable development. From the perspectives of both environmental and civil rights law, the book explores how environmental justice issues are framed, addressed, and resolved in the United States through acts of civil disobedience; federal, state, and local government initiatives; litigation and alternative dispute resolution; and mediation. "Environmental Justice" also examines this area of law as an essential tool for governments to achieve sustainable communities. Environmental law provides the foundation for governmental policies and actions for the preservation and protection of the environment and human health, and for ensuring that the use of natural resources is both equitable and sustainable.show more
