Reviews

"David Pellow has once again pushed the boundaries of environmental justice scholarship with this pivotal new text. What is Critical Environmental Justice? offers a politically robust and theoretically informed way forward that enables environmental justice to be more inclusive while not losing its oppositional nature. This is the book that the environmental justice movement has been waiting for."
Laura Pulido, University of Oregon

"Asking what environmental justice could look like if we moved beyond race and class, Pellow develops a robust, 'Critical Environmental Justice Studies' framework that draws from numerous scholarly fields, which he then uses to skillfully unite issues such as Black Lives Matter, the U.S. prison industrial complex, and conflicts in Israel and Palestine."
Julian Agyeman, Tufts University

"[G]roundbreaking. [...] I would characterize the book without hesitation as an essential read. Among the steadily increasing number of new EJ articles and books, this is a rare find: one that broadened my perspective and truly challenged my thinking about environmental justice." Ryan Holifield, Review of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Studies
