Former Oxford Sociology DPhil student Rebecca Wong has been awarded the 2020 ACS Distinguished Book Award for her work "The Illegal Wildlife Trade in China: Understanding the Distribution Networks", Palgrave (2019).
The book offers a theoretically-based study on crimes against protected wildlife in mainland China with first-hand empirical data collected over five years. It provides an overall examination of crimes against protected and endangered wildlife and an extensive account of the situation in China, where a significant portion of the illegal wildlife trade is currently happening.
Full details of Rebecca W. Y. Wong's book can be found on the Palgrave website.
