ENVIRONMENTAL RACISM: CONFRONTING ISSUES OF GLOBAL JUSTICE

Global Justice


ABSTRACT

Racial minorities in the United States are disproportionately exposed to toxic wastes and other environmental hazards, and cleanup efforts in their communities are slower and less thorough than efforts elsewhere. Internationally, wealthy countries of the North increasingly ship hazardous wastes to poorer countries of the South, resulting in such tragedies as the disaster at Bhopal. Through case studies that highlight the type of information that is seldom reported in the news, Faces of Environmental Racism exposes the type and magnitude of environmental racism, both domestic and international. The essays explore the justice of current environmental practices, asking such questions as whether cost-benefit analysis is an appropriate analytic technique and whether there are alternate routes to sustainable development in the South. The second edition of this unique volume further explores the ongoing problem of environmental racism. With a new introduction and preface, and new chapters by such experts as Charles W. Mills, Robert Melchior Figueroa, and Segun Gbadegesin, the second edition of Faces of Environmental Racism carries on the work of the first.
