Editorial Reviews

This interdisciplinary text explores the enforcement of environmental protection legislation. Fifteen chapters discuss the definition of environmental crime, a history of the U.S. environmental movement, economics and politics, a social understanding of the natural sciences, federal legislation, an interagency approach, and identifying essential connections. Concludes with five case studies that exemplify many of the themes presented in the text--activism, politics, economics, legislation, hazardous waste, government involvement, and international issues.
