Managing resources sustainably on the local level is essential for achieving the global goal of sustainable development. The importance of people's participation for sustainable development has recently become increasingly acknowledged yet there is little understanding of the multiple dimensions that such participation involves. Grassroots Environmental Action questions the viability of traditional management systems. Case studies from Latin America, Asia and Africa focus on areas where local people are vigorous actors in the determination of their own future and that of their environment.

Culture is an important mediator between behavior and the environment, impacting on social participation and environmental action, and thus in turn on sustainable development. It is also of great significance in shaping our quality of life within the context of globalization, both in urban and rural areas.In this volume, renowned researchers from around the world and from a variety of disciplines, including psychology, architecture, design, and urban planning, take a global perspective in looking at the implications of culture and cultural differences for our quality of life and the way in which people interact. These implications are illustrated using real-world examples.The contributions, carefully selected and edited from presentations at the 17th Conference of the International Association for People-Environment Studies (IAPS) held in A Coruna, Spain, deal with the following main themes: Culture, quality of life, and globalization Environmental action and participation Urban sustainability and cultural diversity Children and the environment The elderly and the environmentA useful tool for researchers, students, and those involved in decision-making processes, this book should contribute to the improved management of environmental resources within a framework of sustainability, multiculturalism, and responsible environmental action.

In this bold contribution to environmental law, Robert Verchick argues for a new perspective on disaster law that is based on the principles of environmental protection. He contends that government must assume a stronger regulatory role in managing natural infrastructure, distributional fairness, and public risk. Verchick proposes changes to the federal statutes governing environmental impact assessments, wetlands development, air emissions, and flood control, among others. This is a new vision of disaster law for the next generation.

From Environmental Action to Ecoterrorism

From Environmental Action to Ecoterrorism

This book scrutinizes the growth of the ‘eco-terrorism’ movement operating on a global scale, focusing on the main groups and their more radical offshoots, both historically and those currently active.

This book scrutinizes the growth of the ‘eco-terrorism’ movement operating on a global scale, focusing on the main groups and their more radical offshoots, both historically and those currently active. These include Earth First!, the Earth Liberation Front, the Animal Liberation Front and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. It critically examines how these groups form and how they have evolved, their key personnel, their strategies and tactics, principles, motivating philosophies and attitudes to violence. Specifically, the book seeks to understand whether such groups inevitably evolve from activists to militants to terrorists, as the literature suggests. Lastly, it considers the future of such groups, asking whether they will become more prominent as more people become ecologically aware and as global environmental conditions deteriorate, or whether such groups have peaked as a force for environmental change.
