With this splendid collection of essays, Rob White's important role in the development of green, eco-global criminology is confirmed. This book is a theoretically solid collection and is invaluable for any student and scholar who wants to engage in the growing field of green criminology. White pedagogically takes us through the theories that have been developed to form the basis for how to conceptualise environmental harms and crimes, to which he has greatly contributed. The reader learns about sources of knowledge and how they are valued, as well as about responses to environmental harms through different conceptual frameworks, thus not leaving us empty handed when it comes to addressing such harms. This book is bound to inspire further research and theorizing within green criminology and underlines why this is such an urgent field of inquiry. Ragnhild Sollund, University of Oslo Rob White, one of the pioneers of the burgeoning field of green criminology, has over the years made significant theoretical and empirical contributions to this critical area of study. Theorising Green Criminology assembles many of Rob's most important writings in one volume, allowing us to appreciate the depth and breadth of his contributions to the discipline and build on the solid foundation of critical thought he has produced to analyze environmental harms and advocate for interventions to prevent such harms. Ron Kramer, Western Michigan University Rob White has been a profound, passionate and prolific writer on a range of topics that become more important every day. This book brings together some of his key contributions to the fields of green criminology and environmental sociology, and provides an essential guide to what the author describes as the 'why's, who's and how's of environmental harms'. Nigel South, University of Essex This book brings together some valuable theoretical insights into green criminology drawn from the research of the most prolific and influential scholar in the field. It consists of an outstanding selection of some of the main contributions that White has elaborated over the last decade, and it provides the relevant theoretical and conceptual tools needed for a deeper understanding of environmental crimes and harms and for the formulation of possible responses to them. As well as creating a theoretical framework for those who intend to approach environmental crimes and harms from an eco-global criminological perspective, the book will undoubtedly stimulate and provoke fruitful dialogues among students, scholars and researchers, enabling them to better understand the complex dynamics involved, and to conceptualize and implement appropriate responses in order to deal effectively with one of the most challenging theoretical, epistemological and ethical problems of our time. Lorenzo Natali, University of Milano-Bicocca Rob White accomplishes a monumental achievement of green criminology. These selected essays are full of critical suggestions and encouragements for theory and practice. Green criminology is approaching a 'tipping point' and the new world for the next generation opens with this excellent book. Noriyoshi Takemura, Toin University of Yokohama This book is a powerful tool to support students and researchers conceptualizing green criminology. Each chapter provides a strong theoretical base while engaging in contemporary examples of environmental harm. Anyone interested in conservation and green criminology needs to read this book. Rebecca W.Y. Wong, City University of Hong Kong
