Environmental Victims, Vol. 23: 4, 1996



Edited by Christopher Williams

This issue examines environmentally mediated injury and seeks to change the perception of those who suffer from that of sick patients who are simply in need of treatment, to one of “environmental victims” who deserve justice. It reflects a wide range of interested parties and national perspectives, with academic contributors, frontline activists, and related professionals who are putting ideas into action. Sections cover the US Environmental Justice Movement, classic case studies, and “solution-oriented” approaches. This 185-page issue was guest edited by Christopher Williams and produced within the Global Environmental Change Programme of the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
