Book
Rate this:
In many areas of the world, environmental degradation in and around human settlements is undermining prospects for both socioeconomic justice and ecological sustainability. To explore the issues involved in this worldwide problem, the author focuses on a dramatic instance of conflict that grew out of the unauthorized penetration of human settelments into the Ajusco greenbelt zone, a vital part of Mexico City's ecological reserve. The Mexican government's initial response to these irregular human settlements was contradictory and reactive. Social unrest, ecological deterioration and violence have all been part of the continuing crisis.
