Summary
Poor people, minorities, and citizens of developing nations bear the brunt of environmental hazards such as toxic waste dumps and air pollution. What should be done to change this inequitable situation lies at the heart of the movement for environmental justice. This comprehensive, up-to-date handbook explains this important movement, along with the concurrent issues and controversies. It provides a detailed chronology of key events in the development of the movement, including events associated with both the civil rights and environmental movements; biographical sketches of activists, legislators, scholars and others associated with the movement; legislation, court cases, and policy statements and recommendations; a directory of organizations; lists of print and nonprint resources; a glossary; and an index
