Society, Space, and Social Justice



Society, Space, and Social Justice addresses the social axes of class, disability, gender, race, and "others," and their intersections with sociocultural and political-economic structures in a variety of geographic scales and settings spanning the globe: Brazil, India, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Uganda and the United States. Collectively, the chapters in this book present social injustice in changing and complex world contexts, each context underpinned by theoretical frameworks that facilitate a greater understanding. Methodologically diverse, the books' chapters employ both quantitative and qualitative techniques to uncover these forms of (in)justice and the underlying processes that contribute to their genesis and regeneration. Environment and outdoors, employment and labor, health and disease, housing, infrastructure and urban design: the studies in this book span across such varied interests and themes, all woven around and grounded by concepts of place and place so as to transcend disciplinary boundaries and hold relevance for geography as well as related fields. A timely collection in an era where "old isms" find deeper entrenchments or new manifestations, this book provides examples of both social injustices and approaches to social justice, examined through case studies that provide an in-depth understanding of the mechanisms by which social justice might be perverted, thwarted or achieved.
