Selected by Choice magazine as an "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2016"Following Sollund's very helpful introduction to current thinking in critical green criminology, the book has 12 other chapters, among whose authors are some of the field's leading figures. ... The chapters are attentive to theoretical issues, of a high standard, uniformly well written, and very capably edited by both Sollund and her publisher. An important book that deserves to be widely read. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (P. Beirne, Choice, Vol. 53 (6), February, 2016)
