Abstract:     
Change is coming rapidly to the People's Republic of China (the "PRC" or "China"), especially in three related areas – degradation of its physical environment, transformation of its economic system and modernization of its legal system. This Article examines a development that lies at the intersection of these three areas of change: the use of criminal law in the fight against environmental degradation in the PRC.
