The first discussion of green criminology appeared in 1990, when this area of research was proposed as a unique specialty within criminology (Lynch, 1990) and specifically as an extension of radical or Marxist criminology (for discussion see, Lynch & Michalowski, 2006) useful for constructing a political economic and class analysis of crime, law and justice related to environmental destruction. Today, nearly 30 years later, there is impressive diversity in green criminological studies. Here, we draw attention only to the political economic approach to green criminology. When necessary, however, we distinguish the political economic view from other green criminological approaches, referring to PEG-C or political economic green criminology.
