The rise of the U.S. environmental health movement By Kate Davies
2013 | 280 Pages | ISBN: 1442221372 | EPUB | 3 MB
This is the first book to offer a comprehensive examination of the Environmental Health Movement, which unlike many parts of the environmental movement, focuses on ways toxic chemicals and other hazardous agents in the environmental effect human health and wellbeing. Born in 1978 when Lois Gibbs organized her neighbors to protest the health effects of a toxic waste dump in Love Canal, New York, the movement has spread across the United States and throughout the world. By placing human health at the center of its environmental argument, this movement has achieved many victories in community mobilization and legislative reform. In The Rise of the US Environmental Health Movement, Environmental health expert Katherine Davies describes the movement's historical, ideological, and cultural roots and analyzes its strategies and successes.
