CHOICE ReviewGlobal climate change or disruption is a crisis not because of the magnitude of any single measure of change, such as average temperature increase, sea level rise, frequency and strength of storms, or loss of agricultural productivity, but because it pervades and threatens every aspect of life on earth and exacerbates many existing ills, including poverty and economic inequality, food scarcity, global conflict, and pollution, compounding the adverse effects of each on human health. In this book, Méndez (Univ. of California, Irvine) highlights these effects of climate change through an engaging application of the intersectionality construct, addressing the crisis from the perspective of activism and advocacy for social justice. Much of the text comprises firsthand, detailed observation of pertinent conditions, events, and policy debates as found in California. There is a degree of unevenness in this mode of presentation, perhaps inevitably so, with some sections patiently explaining the most basic concepts, while others seem to presume readers' familiarity with trendy social science jargon and related styles of analysis. Sources are extensively documented in the notes and bibliography. Neither a textbook nor a monograph, the text does describe and document details of the current, many-faceted struggle to address climate change by seeking environmental justice. Summing Up: Recommended. Faculty and professionals. --David Bantz, University of Alaska
