Editors: Ragnhild Sollund (Norwegian Social Research Institute , Elisenberg, Oslo, Norway)
Book Description:
The fields of environmental crime and speciesism are of increasing interest to social scientists. In the present book, new articles based on empirical examples shed light on how the exploitation of nature and animals take place as well as exploring its sources and consequences. Empirical evidence is drawn from South East Asia as well as Africa, UK, US and Scandinavia and will show that children are socialized into speciesist attitudes in the school system, how illegal logging and wild life trade damages the ecosystem, how consumerism leads to environmental harm, how industrial farming may be understood in the Marxist term of alienation, as may speciesism, and how even the animal protection movement itself may be linked to ideas of humans' superiority, so far as "green" movements do not consider animals as individuals.
