About the Author

Gordon Walker is Chair of Environment, Risk and Justice in the Lancaster Environment Centre at Lancaster University, UK.


"At last, the book we have been waiting for. Conceptually acute, empirically informed, and written with verve and refreshing honesty by an acknowledged international expert with years of experience in the field, Gordon Walker has produced the most distinctive contribution to the theory and practice of environmental justice in recent years." Professor Andrew Dobson, School of Politics, International Relations and the Environment, Keele University, UK.

"Moving beyond justice as a question only of distribution and procedure, to the distinct yet related notion of justice as recognition, Walker has produced an excellent, nuanced upper- level text with a rare analytical insight and a critical edge that has, for the first time, truly opened up the possibility of multiple spatial and political understandings of environmental justice." Professor Julian Agyeman, Department of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning, Tufts University, USA.

"This useful work provides a synthesis, a review of the literature, and a history of the environmental justice movement. Recommended." - S.E. Wiegand, CHOICE, September 2012

"One of the main objectives of the book is the detailed analysis of these cases, in a clear and understandable way. This objective is perfectly accomplished, not only because each of the texts makes a persuasive case for employing the environmental justice perspective, but also because of their use of text boxes that summarize and clarify concepts related to the topic analyzed in each chapter." - Progress in Development Studies, Oscar Alfranca, Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Catalunya, Spain
