Is the environmental justice debate solely an economic issue? Is it a social issue as well as a moral, political, or science issue? In Environmental Justice Analysis: Theories, Methods, and Practice author Feng Liu suggests it is all of them. He presents a multi-perspective, multi-disciplinary, and inter-disciplinary approach to analyzing environmental justice issues.
Liu demonstrates how cutting-edge technologies and methods such as the Internet, Geographic Information Systems, and modeling tools can contribute to better equity analysis and policy evaluations. He focuses on the various methods of environmental justice research, providing you with an integrated framework for conducting rigorous equity analysis.

Carefully and critically examining all aspects of the issue, Environmental Justice Analysis: Theories, Methods, and Practice provides you with a comprehensive and analytical treatment of theories and methods for analyzing and assessing environmental justice and equity issues.
