"The Environmental Crusaders" highlights citizens in Israel, the former Czechoslovakia, and the United States who challenged serious ecological problems and demanded a safe environment and an accountable society. The men and women portrayed here confronted the threat of nuclear contamination, chemical waste and pollution, exposure to garbage and industrial refuse, untreated sewage, and other serious dangers. Drawing upon 140 interviews, Myron Peretz Glazer and Penina Migdal Glazer portray the personal transformation of those who moved from uninvolved residents to political activists working collectively to improve the quality of community life. In the process, they show how Environmentalism is adapting to the new global economy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book eloquently captures the courageous and inspiring stories of ordinary people from three countries who believed that they, as individuals, could make a difference in their communities. In spite of personal sacrifice, public ridicule, and even physical threats, these 'crusaders' stepped forward to challenge the powers that be and demand change, showing that our world can--and must--be made a better place for us all."

--Penny Newman


"By conceiving of protest politics as a vital component of citizen's efforts to build a more democratic society, this book offers a more hopeful portrait of social capital in the 1990s than that of other social capital theorists."

--Christian Hunold, Environmental Politics
