'Green scholars, students and activists will find this anthology a landmark of inspiration. It is a significant advance in our understanding of numerous aspects of eco-global harms and crimes including, especially, those we continue to commit against our fellow creatures on tiny planet Earth.' Piers Beirne, University of Southern Maine, USA 'Environmental harms and crimes have global and local significance but we need to demonstrate this through analytical, practical and interdisciplinary work on a region-by-region basis. This collection of original essays is a major contribution to this endeavour. It is warmly welcomed and enthusiastically recommended.' Nigel South, University of Essex, UK "Eco-global Crimes is an important entry into the green criminological literature and provides a timely discussion of the current state of the field and the need for its development. Across its 15 chapters Eco-Global Crimes maps various aspects of green criminological debate identifying both the important theoretical perspectives that set green criminology apart from mainstream criminological thought, but crucially also considering areas where a green perspective can and should be applied to mainstream criminal justice issues." Criminal Law & Criminal Justice Books 'Those seeking a detailed survey of green or eco-global criminology with a particular focus on harm to non-human species will find this an inspiring collection.' British Journal of Criminology
