Environmental Justice and Activism in Indianapolis examines how place attachment, social capital, and perceptions influence citizen responses when their communities are environmentally threatened. Trevor K. Fuller determines what inspires citizens to take action by analyzing the responses of two communities in the Indianapolis, Indiana area afflicted with environmental hazards. Though both areas suffer from environmental hazards, one community was much more motivated to take an activist stance against current and future environmental issues in the community. Fuller investigates how political and economic forces shape the distribution of hazards, the scope of citizen activism, and ultimately, determine whether a community is rejuvenated. This work will be of interest to environmental, political, and historical geographers and scholars.
