Inhaltsangabe: Fairness and Futurity: Essays on Environmental Sustainability and Social Justice brings together leading international figures in political theory and sociology, as well as representatives from the political community, to consider the normative issues at stake in the relationship between environmental sustainability and social justice.
It raises important questions and sets out to provide the answers. If future generations are owed justice, what should we bequeath them? Is `sustainability' an appropriate medium for environmentalists to express their demands? Is environmental protection compatible with intra-generational justice? Is environmental sustainability a luxury when social peace has broken down?
These essays emerged from three intensive seminars that involved participants in constant re-evaluations of their work, and which bought three distinct groups?environmental theorists, `mainstream' political theorists, and policy community members?into fruitful contact. In particular, the attempt to involve `mainstream' theorists in environmental questions, and to encourage environmentalists to use intellectual resources of political theory, should be highlighted.
A fruitful collaboration ... the volume exhibits a high degree of coherence of purpose. Its purpose, moreover, is not purely academic, but includes a concern to offer guidance for policy-makers ... cutting-edge contributions to this important new area of inquiry. ( Environemental Values)
A welcome contribution to the debate, especially to the complex relationship between sustainability and social justice ... this book is an important reading for all those who are genuinely interested in sustainability, sustainable development and social justice and their often problematic relationship. ( Environmental Politics)
