About this title


Water, Crime and Security in the Twenty-First Century represents criminology’s first book-length contribution to the study of water and water-related crimes, harms and security. The chapters cover topics such as: water pollution, access to fresh water in the Global North and Global South, water and climate change, the commodification of water and privatization, water security and pacification, and activism and resistance surrounding issues of access and pollution. With examples ranging from Rio de Janeiro to Flint, Michigan to the Thames River, this original study offers a comprehensive criminological overview of the contemporary and historical relationship between water and crime.  Coinciding with the International Decade for Action, “Water for Sustainable Development,” 2018–2028, this timely volume will be of particular relevance to students and scholars of green criminology, as well as those interested in critical geography, environmental anthropology, environmental sociology, political ecology, and the study of corporate crime and state crime.


“Water is the essence of life. Is it any wonder then that it is at the heart of so many contemporary social conflicts? This fascinating, timely and troubling book casts a critical lens on the power, interests and social forces that are presently determining the quality, quantity and availability of fresh water worldwide. The authors persuasively argue that water is and ought to be a basic human right, precisely because it is essential for everyone, everywhere.” (Rob White, University of Tasmania, Australia)

“It took too long for a book which considers how much of the water landscape is riddled with criminal activities, harm and serious security issues, but now it is here. This is a must read for those who work on the relationship between water and social justice, and seek to find ways to fight for a more just hydro-social system.” (Professor Erik Swyngedouw, Department of Geography, University of Manchester, UK, author of Liquid Power and Social Power and the Urbanization of Water, MIT, 2015)
