Informed by socialMoreIn this wholly revised Second Edition, Michael Edelstein draws on his thirty years as a community activist to provide a much-expanded theoretical foundation for understanding the psychosocial impacts of toxic contamination. Informed by social psychological theory and an extensive survey of documented cases of toxic exposure, and enlivened by excerpts drawn from more than a thousand interviews with victims, Contaminated Communities presents a candid portrayal of the toxic victims experience and the key stages in the course of toxic disaster.

The Second Edition introduces dozens of new cases and provides expanded considerations of environmental justice, environmental racism, environmental turbulence, and environmental stigma, as well as a fully articulated theory of lifescape. The new edition moves past the well-charted role of reactive environmentalism to explore issues for a proactivist approach that employs a third path of social learning, sustainable innovation, consensus building, and community empowerment.
