490 1  Urban and industrial environments. 
504    Includes bibliographical references and index. 
520    In this book environmentalist and lawyer William Shutkin 
       describes a new kind of environmental and social activism 
       spreading across the nation, one that joins the pursuit of
       environmental quality with that of civic health and 
       sustainable local economies. In the face of challenges 
       posed by often corrosive market forces and widespread 
       social disaffection, this civic environmentalism is 
       creating nothing less than a new public discourse and 
       dynamic social vision grounded in environmental action. 
520 80 Shutkin points the way to vibrant, sustainable communities
       through four inspiring examples of civic environmentalism 
       in action: the redevelopment of contaminated urban land 
       for agriculture in inner-city Boston, mass-transit-based 
       development and waterfront restoration in Oakland, 
       protection of open space and conservation-based 
       development in rural Colorado, and smart-growth and 
       sustainability strategies in suburban New Jersey. The 
       book's underlying message is that the nation's 
       environmental health is a critical factor in its success 
       as a vital democracy. Social health, democratic community,
       and environmentalism, Shutkin shows, are one.
