Environmental Health and Racial Equity in the United States: Building Environmentally Just, Sustainable, and Livable Communities
By Robert D. Bullard, PhD; Glenn S. Johnson, PhD; and Angel O. Torres, MCP
"Although significant progress has been made in our understanding and response to environmental health threats, it is clear that unless the environmental justice framework put forth in this book is pursued and fully implemented we will not achieve the goal of eliminating disparities in health in the United States or the goal of global health equity put forth by the World Health Organization's Commission on Social Determinants of Health."-David Satcher, MD, PhD
16th Surgeon General of the United States and
Director, Satcher Health Leadership Institute

From the "Father of Environmental Justice" comes, Environmental Health and Racial Equity, a first-rate account of events, individuals, and organizations that have shaped the environmental justice movement over the past two decades. This book will be an excellent source of information that every serious scholar of the subject should want to have in their collection. The struggles chronicled are both instructive and inspirational to any one who wants to make a difference.
