Abstract:

This work focuses on justice. Its purpose is to understand the relation between natural justice, the "rights" of nature and the rights of people and how this in turn relates to social actions and their impact.

On the basis of his findings, the author considers whether what is just varies at different times and in different places. The book is thus concerned both with social change and environmental change and with their combined interactions. It explores these subjects at the local scale (with numerous examples, from Baltimore to the Welsh Black Mountains) and at regional, national and global levels. It shows how the tensions between processes operating at different scales express themselves in individuals, communities and societies.

The book demonstrates that the just concerns of a community or society need to be understood in the context of both local culture and global economics. It proceeds from the simple to the complex to throw light on and to reformulate the central concepts of nature and environment, needs and justice.

The author ranges through perspectives drawn from economics, literature, art, and social, spatial and cultural theory. The book is informed throughout by a concern to establish how justice may be achieved for people wherever they are.

This work focuses on justice. Its purpose is to understand the relation between natural justice, the "rights" of nature and the rights of people and how this in turn relates to social actions and their impact. It considers whether what is just varies at different times and in different places.
