I have previously published a number of articles and chapters that have been thoroughly reworked for various parts of this book. My first attempt at examining the definition of justice in the US environmental justice movement was published as 'The Justice of Environmental Justice: Reconciling Equity, Recognition, and Participation in a Political Movement', in A. Light and A. de-Shalit (eds.), Moral and Political Reasoning in Environmental Practice.Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 2003. I began the examination of environmental justice in global environmental movements in 'Reconceiving Environmental Justice: Global Movements and Political Theories.' Environmental Politics 13(3): 517–40 (2004) [also published in J. Paavola and I. Lowe (eds.), Environmental Values in the Globalizing World: Nature, Justice and Governance. London: Routledge (2005)]. A chapter on 'Environmental and Ecological Justice: Theory and Practice in the U.S.', in R. Eckersley and J. Barry (eds.), The State and the Global Ecological Crisis. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 2005 was an earlier attempt to explore the role of the state in responding to environmental justice claims. Finally, some of the material in Chapters 7 and 8, on pluralism and engagement, first appeared in a piece on 'The Pluralist Imagination', in J. Dryzek, A. Philips, and B. Honig (eds.), Oxford Handbook of Political Theory. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2006.
