In Climate Change from a Criminological Perspective, a panel of pioneering green criminologists investigates an increasingly complex chain of ecological causes and effects. Illegal acts are analyzed as they contribute to environmental decline (e.g., wildlife poaching) or result from ecological distress (e.g., survival-related theft). Regulatory and other interventions are critiqued, concepts of environmental harm refined, and new research methodologies called for. And while individual events described are mainly local, the contributors keep the global picture, and substantial questions about human rights and social relationships, firmly in mind. Topics featured include:

  • Global warming as corporate crime.
  • Climate change and the courts: U.S. and global views.
  • Climate change, natural disasters, and gender inequality.
  • The roles and responsibilities of environmental enforcement networks.
  • A sociocultural perspective on climate change denial.
  • PLUS: instructive in-depth chapters on criminological aspects of Hurricane Katrina and the Japanese nuclear disaster.
