This is the first book to assess the prospects and challenges of the environmental justice movement, which contends that low-income persons and communities of color bear a disproportionate burden of toxic waste sites, hazardous jobs, and polluted air and water.
"Foreman's book succeeds so well because he conveys sympathy for the concerns of poor communities without letting that sympathy stand in the way of a hard look at what is real in those concerns, what is exaggerated or misdiagnosed, and what sort of changes can reasonably be expected in a world of tradeoffs." Reason
"An important book that deserves a wide audience. It is a significant contribution to a debate that has seen more than its share of unchallenged rhetoric and too little dispassionate analysis." The Law and Politics Book Review
