About this product
- DescriptionOver the past ten years, the study of environmental harm and 'crimes against nature' has become an increasingly popular area of research amongst crimilogists. This book represents the first international, comprehensive and introductory text for green crimilogy, offering a concise exposition of theory and concepts and providing extensive geographical coverage, diversity and depth to the many issues pertaining to environmental harm and crime. Divided into three sections, the book draws on a range of international case studies and examples, and looks at the conceptual and methodological foundations of green crimilogy, before examining in detail areas of environmental crime and harm, and how they are addressed, including: * climate change and social conflict; * abuse and harm to animals; * threats to bio-diversity; * pollution and toxic waste; * environmental victims; * environmental regulation, law enforcement and courts; * environmental forensic studies; * environmental crime prevention. Green Crimilogy is packed with pedagogical features, including dialogue boxes, case examples, discussion questions and lists of further reading and is perfect for students around the world engaged with green crimilogy and crime against the environment.
