Winner, American Sociological Association Section on Environment and Technology Allan Schnaiberg Outstanding Publication Award
The world currently faces several severe social and environmental crises, including economic under-development, widespread poverty and hunger, lack of safe drinking water for one-sixth of the world’s population, deforestation, rapidly increasing levels of pollution and waste, dramatic declines in soil fertility and biodiversity, and global warming. Inequality, Democracy, and the Environment sheds light on the structural causes of these and other social and environmental crises, highlighting in particular the key role that elite-controlled organizations, institutions, and networks play in creating these crises.

Reviews for Inequality, Democracy, and the Environment
"Downey presents important perspectives about inequality, militarism, and democracy. This important addition to the environment sociology literature should promote serious consideration of the macrostructuralist approach to social problems in general."
CHOICE
"It is very well written. More importantly, it illuminates the centrality of elite-controlled mechanisms."
Political Science Quarterly
