About this book
This open access book helps readers combine history, politics, and ethics to address the most pressing problem facing the world today: environmental survival. In A Climate of Justice, Marvin Brown connects the environmental crisis to basic questions of economic, social, and racial justice. Brown shows how our current social climate maintains systemic injustices, and he uncovers resources for change through a civic ethics of repair and reciprocity. A must-read for researchers and educators in the area of environmental ethics and those teaching courses in the fields of public policy and environmental sustainability.

About the author
Marvin T. Brown has been teaching, consulting, and writing in the areas of business and social ethics for 40 years, always exploring the necessary conditions for creative conversation on critical issues. Alongside his teaching at the University of San Francisco and other Bay Area universities, Brown has served as an ethics consultant for various businesses and has been invited to give lectures and workshops in the United States, Germany, Poland, Argentine, Venezuela, Norway, Canada, and China. He has also presented numerous times at the annual meetings of the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics, the Society of Business Ethics, and the International Society of Business, Economics, and Ethics.
Brown’s writings have evolved from a focus on the work environment (Working Ethics, 1990 and The Ethical Process, 1993), to the organization in society (Corporate Integrity, 2005), to the social economy (Civilizing the Economy, 2010), and more recently, to the social context of environmentalism (A Climate of Justice). His books, and multiple essays, have been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Korean, and Chinese.
In 2019 Marvin Brown received a Lifetime Service Award from the Philosophy Department at the University of San Francisco. He has also received a Faculty Service Award from USF and an Alumni Achievement Award from Nebraska Wesleyan University.
