Dumping in Dixie : race, class, and environmental quality by Robert D Bullard( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and held by 1,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To be poor, working-class, or a person of color in the United States often means bearing a disproportionate share of the country's environmental problems. Starting with the premise that all Americans have a basic right to live in a healthy environment, Dumping in Dixie chronicles the efforts of five African American communities, empowered by the civil rights movement, to link environmentalism with issues of social justice. In the third edition, Bullard speaks to us from the front lines of the environmental justice movement about new developments in environmental racism, different o

The quest for environmental justice : human rights and the politics of pollution( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1994, Sierra Club Books was proud to publish Dr. Robert D. Bullard's Unequal Protection: Environmental Justice and Communities of Color, a collection of essays contributed by some of the leading participants in the First National People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit, which focused attention on "environmental racism"--Racial discrimination in environmental policymaking and the enforcement of environmental protection laws and regulations. Now, picking up where that groundbreaking anthology left off, Dr. Bullard has assembled a new collection of essays that capture the voices of frontline warriors who are battling environmental injustice and human rights abuses at the grassroots level around the world and challenging government and industry policies and globalization trends that place people of color and the poor at special risk. Part I presents an overview of the early environmental justice movement and highlights key leadership roles assumed by women activists. Part II examines the lives of people living in "sacrifice zones"--toxic corridors (such as Louisiana's infamous "Cancer Alley") where high concentrations of polluting industries are found. Part III explores land use, land rights, resource extraction, and sustainable development conflicts, including Chicano struggles in America's Southwest. Part IV examines human rights and global justice issues, including an analysis of South Africa's legacy of environmental racism and the corruption and continuing violence plaguing the oil-rich Niger delta. Together, the diverse contributors to this much-anticipated follow-up anthology present an inspiring and illuminating picture of the environmental justice movement in the first decade of the twenty-first century. --Publisher

Race, place, and environmental justice after Hurricane Katrina : struggles to reclaim, rebuild, and revitalize New Orleans and the Gulf Coast by Beverly Wright( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall near New Orleans leaving widespread death and destruction. The inept emergency response that followed exposed major institutional flaws and poor planning. Questions linger: Can this happen again? Is our government equipped to plan for, mitigate, and recover from disasters? Can the public trust government response to be fair? Does race matter?" "Racial disparities exist in disaster response, cleanup, rebuilding, reconstruction, and recovery. Race plays out in disaster survivors' ability to rebuild, replace infrastructure, obtain loans and locate housing. Generally, low-income and people-of-color disaster victims spend more time in temporary housing and are more vulnerable to permanent displacement. In exploring the geography of vulnerability, this book asks why some communities get left behind economically, spatially, and physically before and after disasters strike."--Jacket
