Environmental Activism on the Ground succeeds splendidly in complicating and enriching our understanding of modern environmentalism. Focusing on Indigenous and non–Indigenous activists in an impressive range of settings, Jonathan Clapperton and Liza Piper draw together and interpret diverse methodological and conceptual insights in a way that gives new, deserved prominence to those who have strived—and continue to strive—for environmental justice at the local level. These accounts left me both enlightened and heartened. Scholars from across the humanities and social sciences will welcome this volume.

Jonathan Clapperton and Liza Piper have assembled a remarkable collection of essays revealing previously hidden histories of local and Indigenous environmental activism. Environmental Activism on the Ground is a timely and captivating volume that deserves attention not just from scholars, but also from readers with even a casual interest in the diverse an creative ways Canadians have responded to environmental challenges.
