The Lorax, Criminology and Capitalism: Can Criminology Speak for the Trees?
In this post I draw upon environmental lessons offered by Dr. Seuss in The Lorax, and James Lovelock, an environmentalist, to explore the intersection of environmental issues, political economy, and criminology. The Lorax, published in 1972 was published two years before Lovelock’s well know Gaia Theory. Both works explore deteriorating environmental conditions in relation to expansion of economic development.
