I'm all for getting angry at injustice-- count me in! But when authors do so with such bias and such poor writing skills, I find myself getting angry at the authors, not the real enemy. Further adding to the problem was the issue of the authors writing about themselves in the third person, using such adjectives as "creative," "witty," etc. Save it for the resume, please.
I understand that the issue of environmental justice is very heated, and why the authors only chose to tell their sides of the story. However, their language-- almost "he said she said" like, in a way-- turned me off so much that I struggled to read the chapters assigned for my class. I believe at one point they even referred to the other side as "evil." Fantastic, the other side probably is evil. However, writing such in a book that you want people to take seriously is really kind of strange.
A few Google searches would do a better job of illuminating the issues behind environmental justice.
