Publisher Description

Leading green criminologist Rob White asks what can be learned from the problem-solving focus of crime prevention to help face the challenges of climate change in this call to arms for criminology and criminologists.

Industries such as energy, food and tourism and the systematic destruction of the environment through global capitalism are scrutinized for their contribution to global warming. Ideas of 'state-corporate crime' and 'ecocide' are introduced and explored in this concise overview of criminological writings on climate change. This sound and robust application of theoretical concepts to this 'new' area also includes commentary on topical issues such as the US withdrawal from the Paris Climate agreement.

Part of the New Horizons in Criminology series, which draws on the inter-disciplinary nature of criminology and incorporates emerging perspectives like social harm, gender and sexuality, and green criminology.

Review

"White's overall message is one of critique, connectivity, inclusion and collective enterprise. For him, a climate change criminology requires us to get to know our planet - what is going on where and why, and what we can do about it. It is an ambitious transdisciplinary challenge, but a sensible one it is hard to argue against it. There is no more pressing problem facing the continuation of the human species and Rob White has ensured that green criminology asserts a central place in the future of humanity and that of all living things." Reece Walters, Queensland University of Technology "With this book, Rob White is breaking new ground. The book is an important addition to the climate change literature. White establishes here the urgency of knowing who is doing what to prevent, stop, encourage and/or expand climate change, as well as the injustices produced by the phenomenon." Ragnhild Sollund, University of Oslo
