Environmental Justice: Creating Equity, Reclaiming Democracy (Environmental Ethics and Science Policy Series) by Kristin Shrader-Frechette



Series: Environmental Ethics and Science Policy Series. Paperback: 288 pages. I use this book in my Environmental Ethics course, and its content is tte sets out her cases and arguments in support of her conclusions in a clear and empirically well-grounded fashion.

Shrader-Frechette offers a rigorous philosophical discussion of environmental justice. Explaining fundamental ethical concepts such as equality, property rights, procedural justice, free informed consent, intergenerational equity, and just compensation-and then bringing them to bear on real-world social issues-she shows how many of these core concepts have been compromised for a large segment of the global population, among them Appalachians, African-Americans, workers in hazardous jobs, and indigenous people in developing. She also argues that those affected by environmental problems must be included in the process of remedying those problems; that all citizens have a duty to engage in activism on behalf of Environmental Justice; and that in a democracy it is the people, not the government, that are ultimately responsible for fair use of the environment.

Shrader-Frechette offers a rigorous philosophical discussion of environmental justice. Explaining fundamental ethical concepts such as equality, property rights, procedural justice, free informed consent, intergenerational equity, and just compensation--and then bringing them to bear on real-world social issues--she shows how many of these core concepts have been compromised for a large segment of the global population, among them Appalachians, African-Americans, workers in hazardous jobs, and indigenous people in developing nations. She argues that burdens like pollution and resource depletion need to be apportioned more equally, and that there are compelling ethical grounds for remedying our environmental problems. She also argues that those affected by environmental problems must be included in the process of remedying those problems; that all citizens have a duty to engage in activism on behalf of Environmental Justice; and that in a democracy it is the people, not the government, that are ultimately responsible for fair use of the environment.

I use this book in my Environmental Ethics course, and its content is great--Shrader-Frechette sets out her cases and arguments in support of her conclusions in a clear and empirically well-grounded fashion.

However, the electronic edition is clearly a poorly scanned, low quality version, with fuzzy font and multiple errors per page. Additionally, the notes are not hyper-linked, so checking her references becomes much more difficult. I am very disappointed with it.

I downloaded the kindle version for school, it is a horrible copy of this book. HORRIBLE. Can barely make out some of the words and i dislike that i cannot figure out the page numbers from the real text. I reccommend NOT buying this copy digital, and if so buy it from google books its 100% better, I ended up getting a refund and going there to download it and its a lot better.

best logical, analytic treatment of environmental justice available.
Kindle version (created by amazon) is AWFUL----because copied image is fuzzy

After reading this title in an undergraduate philosophy class, and reading it carefully and thoroughly, I feel confident giving it a bad review. It was selected by the professor, who I assume is a fan, but I know I, and all my friends in class, extremely dislike this book. I'm a very strong student, an environmentalist, and whatever else you think I need to be a credible reviewer, but this book is very un-engaging. If you're a professor yourself, I urge you not to use it in class.
The arguments are at times internally inconsistent (the author feels comfortable negating opponents for using the same argument structures she later uses), hyperbolic (the author creates extensive yet repetitive lists of victims of various injustices, redundantly reclassifying the same individual in several ways to make the list longer), and on and on.
The nail in the coffin, from a student's point of view, is that it does so in an extremely boring manner. I feel bad that the first review is such a negative one, but from the eye of a undergrad, it's a really bad book. Hopefully a professional philosopher can be more constructive, but undergrad students (its a class for majors and non-majors, to fill a core requirement) are not an appropriate audience for this book.

I read this book after seeing Shrader-Frechette's interview in the US Catholic, and I found the work to be an excellent introduction to the philosophical and historical issues surrounding the EJ movement.
