Description: Green Criminology embraces a wide and rapidly growing network of researchers andscholars around the world who are actively engaged in the study of environmentalcrime and ecological justice. Transgressions against humans, eco-systems, andanimals constitute the main focus of Green Criminology and this new four-volumecollection from Routledge provides an authoritative, one-stop reference work tomake sense of the wide range of approaches, theories, and concepts that haveinformed its development and growth.Themes covered in the collection include: the conceptual foundations of GreenCriminology; victimization and offending; criminal-justice responses toenvironmental crime; and emerging environmental issues, such as climate change,that demand urgent criminological attention. Topics range from transnationalenvironmental crimes, such as the illegal dumping of waste and illegal trade inwildlife, through to prosecution and sentencing in relation to environmentalcrimes.Each volume provides a provocative and stimulating showcase of criminologicalresearch, scholarship, and commentary dealing with the nature and dynamics ofenvironmental crime. The volumes are structured to provide users with a strongsense of the theories, methodological approaches, conceptual innovations, andempirical research of Green Criminology. Together, they constitute an essentialwork of reference for anyone interested in social and environmentaltransformations and justice from a criminological perspective.
