“Julian Agyeman has done more than any other scholar to emphasise the potential in the relationship between environmental justice and ecological sustainability.”

—David Schlosberg, Professor of Environmental Politics, The University of Sydney

“There’s lots to think about if we want to build cities that are culturally-inclusive and sustainable in the most comprehensive sense of that term. Julian Agyeman brings great passion, intelligence, and imagination to the task, and nicely primes the pump for the rest of us.”

—Dean Saitta, University of Denver

“The authors have undertaken the important task of linking research, activism, and discourses around environmental justice and sustainable development. This is a crucial project because of the real divisions that exist between proponents of each vision.”

—David Naguib Pellow, Ethnic Studies Department, University of California, San Diego
