Reviews

"The collection edited by Walters, Westerhuis and Wyatt contains some excellent theoretical essays on the nature of environmental crime and harm, on the role of global capitalism as a major offender, case studies of the management or lack thereof of e-waste disposal, wildlife trafficking, carbon trading fraud, chemical pollution. There are some highly relevant discussions concerning the dynamics of regulation and enforcement including the role of international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and victims organizations. For those seeking an introduction to the general themes and

scope of green criminology, this collection serves as an excellent introduction." - British Journal of Criminology

"Emerging Issues in Green Criminology is an important collection of work that helps move the discussion of green criminology toward fuller recognition of the role power plays in the construction of green crime, their commissions, and the legal and nonlegal responses to those crimes and harms. The result is a work that will become the foundation for expanding the theoretical

analysis of power within green criminology, and making power analysis central to green criminological analysis."

- Michael J. Lynch, University of South Florida, USA

"What a pleasure to read Emerging Issues in Green Criminology! The editors and authors are to be congratulated for having skillfully woven together twelve otherwise quite disparate chapters into a common project concerned with power, justice and harm. This book confirms that green criminology is vibrant, relevant and here to stay.'

- Piers Beirne, University of Southern Maine, USA
