Do trees have legal rights? What risks to the environment should we legally try to control or prevent? In this updated edition of Green Justice, the authors further explore the interrelationship between the legal system and the environment, using key environmental law cases (over half of which are new selections) on such topics as population and biodiversity—and as recent as 1990. The authors’ liberal arts approach leads to a wide spectrum of related topics: the history of the common law, the political science of administrative agencies, our obligation to future generations, and the ecology of species extinction.With the help of explanatory introductions, study questions, and references to relevant literature, students are challenged to determine for themselves how the cases should have been decided and how they link up to broader issues. This accessible text is ideal for undergraduate courses in environmental law and environmental policy as well as nonlaw graduate courses in planning or public administration.

Alternative Criminologies celebrates a kaleidoscopic process of permanent critique and a diversity of social and scientific knowledges. It examines complex and global crime issues in light of the many alternative scientific, artistic, empathetic, campaigning and otherwise imaginative criminologies that attempt to understand and/or fundamentally change why crime and justice take the forms they do. From cutting edge topics such as crimes against humanity, the criminology of mobility, terrorism, cybercrime, corporate crime and green criminology; to gendered perspectives on violence against women, sexualities and feminist and queer criminologies; to key issues in penology such as mass incarceration, the death penalty, desistance from crime, risk and the political economy of punishment; Alternative Criminologies demonstrates the breadth, the variety and the vibrancy of contemporary perspectives on crime, criminalization and punishment. Bringing together 34 leading experts from around the world, this international collection unites fresh and insightful theoretical positions with innovative empirical research and marks an important juncture for criminologies and their imagined futures. Alternative Criminologies is essential reading for students of crime and criminal justice.
