In Don't Burn It Here, sociologists Edward Walsh, Rex Warland, and D. Clayton Smith examine the grassroots anti-incineration movement through eight case studies of proposals to build municipal incinerators. These cases, set in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey, are comparable to hundreds of others across the United States. The authors' research is based on interviews, focus group discussions, extensive newspaper files, and questionnaire responses from participants on both sides of the conflicts.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Incinerators have been a prominent target of environmental protest in the last fifteen years, but no thorough study has yet examined them in the kind of detail that these authors do. This important book contributes greatly to our understanding of the causes, dynamics, and consequences of environmental protest."

--James M. Jasper, New York University
