Product Overview

There is growing interest in addressing environmental destruction as a matter of U.S. national security. Based on neo-Malthusian doomsday scenarios, gendered and racialized Others are commonly scapegoated for ecological devastation and insecurity, allowing both, and their core causes (interlocking systems of inequality), to flourish. Through the lens of intersectional, postcolonial feminism, Urban interrogates mainstream environmental security discourse in the United States, with particular emphasis on immigration across the U.S./Mexico border. Urban also advances alternative approaches grounded not in the greening of hate, but in social, environmental, and reproductive "justice" for all.
