About the Editor

Robert D. Bullard is Ware Professor of Sociology and Director of the Environmental Justice Resource Center at Clark Atlanta University.


“An impressive group of authors have come together to link conversations, debates, theories, and political action around the movements for smart growth and environmental justice in particular, and around regional planning, economic justice, and sustainability in general. They are building on the work of a wide range of scholars, activists, policymakers, and political leaders, and they do an admirable job.”
David Naguib Pellow, University of California, San Diego, author of Garbage Wars: The Struggle for Environmental Justice in Chicago
“In this pathbreaking collection multidisciplinary scholars probe critical aspects of racism and classism shaping urban quality-of-life, from suburban sprawl to environmental toxins and poverties in inner cities. Viewing metropolitan inequalities as intentional, these savvy analysts detai the deep impacts of racial/class discrimination on urban peoples and their built-up ecologies. They look beyond cliches of 'smart growth' to problematize build environments as social-jusitce issues not to be left to media pundits and politicians, but for concerned citizens to strategize around in generating coalitions for change.”
Joe R. Feagin, Ella C. McFadden Professor of Liberal arts, Texas A&M University, Author of Systematic Racism
“The essays in this collection are inspirational and important reading for smart growth advocates and others who want to change growth pattern and policies so that they create a better, fairer America.”
Elizabeth Schilling, Former Executive Director, Growth Management Leadership Alliance
