Although this publication is predominantly aimed at the academic world, it should also appeal to those active in criminal justice, as well as criminology and law students or researchers interested in this limited, albeit growing field of criminological enquiry. Owing to the paucity of criminological publications dealing with natural resources and allied issues to date, this manuscript provides timely and much needed insights into what can essentially be viewed as a seriously neglected criminological focus area of research. The book not only effectively explores macro issues relating to environmental or ecological crime and criminology, but also succeeds in interrogating more specific and applied issues such as transnational environmental crime and environmental law enforcement.
