Routledge International Handbook of Green Criminology

by Avi Brisman

Part of the Routledge International Handbooks Series

Routledge International Handbook of Green Criminology Synopsis

The Routledge International Handbook of Green Criminology was the first comprehensive and international anthology dedicated to green criminology. It presented green criminology to an international audience, described the state of the field, offered a description of a range of environmental issues of regional and global importance, and argued for continued criminological attention to environmental crimes and harms, setting an agenda for further study. In the six years since its publication, the field has continued to grow and thrive. This revised and expanded second edition of the Handbook reflects new methodological orientations, new locations of study such as Asia, Canada and South America, and new responses to environmental harms. While a number of the original chapters have been revised, the second edition offers a range of fresh chapters covering new and emerging areas of study, such as: conservation criminology, eco-feminism, environmental victimology, fracking, migration and eco-rights, and e-waste. This handbook continues to define and capture the field of green criminology and is essential reading for students and researchers engaged in green crime and environmental harm.

Routledge International Handbook of Green Criminology Press Reviews

Diverse criminologists critically update readers on 'glocal' green harms including climate change, crimes against animals and e-waste. In analyzing new(er) green problems such as medical waste, fracking and food crime, the authors demonstrate how rapidly green criminological boundaries are advancing to attend to the intricate and dynamic complexities of human-environment relationships. Meredith Gore, Michigan State University, USA This is an excellent follow-up to the first edition of the Handbook and one that again brings together leading scholars in the field of green criminology. This expanded second edition of the Handbook illustrates the rapid growth and importance of the subdiscipline. It provides a broad tour de horizon that does justice to the richness of green criminological thinking and research. The book will help to inspire students and scholars around the world to delve deeper into specific subjects and thereby contribute to understanding and reducing the problems of environmental crimes and harm. Toine Spapens, Tilburg University, Netherlands This book provides valuable insights and theoretical discussions into the world of environmental crime. Recommended for scholars, students, researchers and anyone interested in understanding crimes against nature and wildlife, this handbook will certainly inspire future work in green criminology. Rebecca Wong, City University of Hong Kong
