Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In Media and Crime: Content, Context and Consequence, the authors combine their skills and expertise in journalism, media studies, and criminology to critically interrogate the relationship between media and crime.The book encourages readers to examine the intricacies and complexities of the media-crime nexus in the contemporary mediascape. It addresses `media' in its traditional and emerging forms, and explores the ways in which police, courts and different groups engage with mediated representations of crime, risk, fear and vulnerability.It also investigates the role that media plays in shaping perceptions of crime and criminality, and how media framing occurs in relation to debates about criminal justice and responses to crime.Key featuresHistorical and contemporary case studies are used to analyse the concepts, theories and methods presented in the text.Glossary terms are used to outline the essential terminology and challenge conventional definitions.The book provides an interdisciplinary synthesis of ideas and applications, drawing on both an applied understanding of media practices, as well as criminological perspectives developed by an expert author team.
