Show Summary Details


In concluding the book, this chapter begins an evaluation of critical pluralism in practice – begins because both critical pluralism and the environmental justice movement are young, and a thorough evaluation will have to be done over time. However, it is possible to explore at this point the successes of the model and the movement, as well as some of the possible problems that it faces now and in the future. In this initial attempt at evaluation, a number of questions are addressed about the value and sustainability of critical pluralist practice in the environmental justice movement in the United States, as well as the possibility of the expansion of such practices into the larger environmental movement.
