Critical Acclaim
‘Reducing environmental harms is a universal human interest. Again, White offers wayfinding for those of us searching for deeper understanding of why and how green criminology can help smooth the science-to-action interface. He paints a vivid picture of the diversity of environmental harms and the tools criminology offers for positive and just change.’
