THE ILLEGAL WILDLIFE TRADE IN CHINA: UNDERSTANDING THE DISTRIBUTION MARKETS, Rebecca Wing Yee Wong (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019)
Published in 2019, this book is a culmination of a five-year research on illegal wildlife trade in Mainland China. The book sheds light on the demand and supply of protected wildlife products in China. The aim of the book is to contribute to the general development of green criminology. This includes contribution to the literature on the distribution stage of the illegal wildlife trade chain. The book also aims to give an understanding on how illegal transactions are carried out. Hopefully, this will give insights to policy makers and law enforcement professionals. The Author also seeks to apply theoretical frameworks to the understanding of the distribution of illegal wildlife products. These applications will make an important contribution to ongoing sociological and criminological discussions.
