‘Think globally, act locally’ emphasizes the importance of scale in dealing with environmental challenges, but not how to factor it in. ~This major new book focuses on the spatial dimensions of urban environmental burdens, showing how important it is to take these into account when pursuing environmental justice and good governance –whether in the context of the sanitary risks of slum living, the pollution of uncontrolled industrialization and motorization, or the enormous ecological footprints of affluent urban lifestyles.
