Media 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 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
