This introductory chapter observes that whereas social harm is generally defined in terms of human needs, rights and being, the subject matter of the present work is concerned with the nonhuman as well as the human. To approach and appreciate this demands a different kind of analytical framework than usually provided within the social harm literature. The chapter explains that at the core of the book lie three interconnected justice-based approaches to environmental harm, pertaining to humans, eco-systems and animals. These approaches are the main components or elements that together constitute a broader eco-justice perspective.
