Popularized in the movies "Erin Brockovich" and "A Civil Action," "environmental justice" refers to any local response to a threat against community health. In this book, Julian Agyeman argues that environmental justice and the sustainable communities movement are compatible in practical ways. Yet sustainability, which focuses on meeting our needs today while not compromising the ability of our successors to meet their needs, has not always partnered with the challenges of environmental justice.
Sustainable Communities and the Challenge of Environmental Justice explores the ideological differences between these two groups and shows how they can work together. Agyeman provides concrete examples of potential model organizations that employ the types of strategies he advocates. This book is vital to the efforts of community organizers, policymakers, and everyone interested in a better environment and community health.

Comments about Life Without Parole: America's New Death Penalty?:
You can hardly put it down, but it is so painful at times you will wish you didn't know what you are learning. Expect the information to haunt you into action to join with prison reformers, unless you have a heart/mind of stone.Very clear thinking on how we have created and contributed to norming LWOP and revenge sentencing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
