Reviews

'This book attempts to move beyond the common characterisations of the links between environment and conflict that centre on the idea of environmental security or the resource curse. It uses a green criminology frame to examine a range of up-to-the-minute cases and to develop a new typology for understanding the dynamics involved. The range of authors, cases and arguments add up to a gripping read that links, for example, poaching, extractive industries, hydro politics and piracy.' Rosaleen Duffy, SOAS, University of London, UK 'Many discussions regarding the degradation and exploitation of the world's resources tend to neglect the surrounding socio-political and economic environment where such activities occur. This volume presents a much needed critical examination on the link between environmental crime and social conflict and provides an important foundation for future scholars.' William D. Moreto, University of Central Florida, USA
