About this book

This book offers an alternative analysis of the various theories and dimensions of green and environmental justice which are rooted in political economy. Much green criminological literature sidelines political economic theoretical insights and therefore with this work the authors enrich the field by vigorously exploring such perspectives. It engages with a number of studies relevant to a political economic approach to justice in order to make two key arguments: that capitalism has produced profound ecological injustices and that the concept of ecological justice (human and ecological rights) itself needs critiquing. Green Criminology and Green Theories of Justice is a timely text which urges the field to revisit its radical roots in social justice while broadening its disciplinary horizons to include a meaningful analysis of political economy and its role in producing and responding to environmental harm and injustice.

Reviews

“Green Criminology and Green Theories of Justice is an especially useful addition to the growing literature on green criminology. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty.” (P. Beirne, Choice, Vol. 57 (11), 2020)


“Anyone wanting to know more about the links between ecological decline, environmental injustice, and the exploitive tendencies of capitalism needs to get this book. The relative newness of the field of green criminology has done nothing to diminish its importance for interrogating the roots of ecologically-rooted suffering, as you'll discover quickly the moment you engage with this important book” (Professor Michael S. Carolan, Colorado State University, USA)
