"This book provides an overview and assessment of green criminology. Based on a political-economic analysis, Green Criminology draws attention to the ways in which the political-economic organization of capitalism causes ecological destruction and disorganization. Focusing on real-world impact, chapters include political-economic examinations of ecological withdrawals, ecological additions, toxic towns, wildlife poaching and trafficking, environmental justice, environmental laws, and nongovernment environmental organizations. The book also explores how ecological footprint, planetary boundary analysis, and other scientific research applies to green criminological analysis"--Provided by publisher.

Don’t miss the incredible, spine-chilling SHADES OF DEATH series from USA TODAY bestselling author Debra Webb, master of suspense! Serial-killer hunter Nick Shade built his legendary career chasing monsters—sadistic criminals with a gruesome thirst for death. When he rescued Montgomery detective Bobbie Gentry from horrific captivity and helped her reclaim her life, he didn’t intend to be a hero. Bobbie can’t forget the nightmares of her trauma at the hands of the Storyteller—or the man who saved her. Working with Nick to outmaneuver the person behind a deadly vendetta feeds her hope that there’s more to her world than ghosts and destruction. Maybe joining Nick’s search for a killer is about gratitude. Maybe it’s nothing more than cold revenge. But the only way they can protect themselves is to trust each other. THE BLACKEST CRIMSON originally published in 2016. NO DARKER PLACE and A DEEPER GRAVE originally published in 2017.

From The Perils of Pauline in the silent movie days to The Mysterious Dr. Satan and other 1940s wartime shorts, serials enchanted movie fans. The innocence, energy and undeniable skill that permeated every reel of these chapter plays is a tribute to the true pioneers of gorilla filmmaking make ‘em fast, make ‘em as good as possible with as little as possible, and make ‘em fun. The best serials are classic examples of early American low-budget filmmaking. Bad serials are silly and stilted, but always charming and sometimes bizarre. At the very least, they offer a window into a welcome time and place where the good guys always win, the kid saves the day, and the hero gets the girl. Introduction by Adrian Booth. 305 pages. Illustrated with nearly a hundred rare scene stills, lobby cards, and posters.
