Environmental Law, Crime, and JusticeeBook - 2008
Environmental harms associated with pollution of the air, land, and water kill and injure more people than street crime on an annual and daily basis. Financially, the losses associated with environmental damage are enormous. Environmental Law, Crime, and Justice addresses these issues through providing an introduction to the study of environmental issues pertinent to the study of environmental crime, contemporary environmental law, environmental policy, and environmental justice. This book blends together areas that are often treated or studied individually or in isolation from one another. Designed for classroom use, Environmental Law, Crime, and Justice exposes readers to the variety of issues involved in the study of environmental law, crime and justice; illustrates the serious nature of these problems; and demonstrates how readers can and should become involved in studying environmental crime, law, and crime."--Jacket.
