Abstract "'Toxic Debt' is a history of environmental racism and inequality. At the same time, it tells the history of Detroit's environmental justice movement, which emerged from over a century of battles over public health, industrial pollution, and water rights in the city. It involves powerful corporate elites, revolutionary auto workers, eco-feminists, and working-class women fighting for welfare rights and environmental justice. Linking the history of racial capitalism, environmental history, and social movement history, 'Toxic Debt' lucidly narrates the story of debt, environmental disaster, and resistance in Detroit"-- Provided by publisher.
