From the Publisher'Yvonne Jewkes' Media and Crime is a remarkable book-a book remarkable for its critical, comprehensive engagement with the most important of contemporary issues. As one of the top scholars in her field, Jewkes provides a panoramic view across the full sweep of media and crime, in all their many forms and entanglements, from television crime coverage to internet search engines and situations of surveillance. Taking the reader with her across this complex cultural terrain, she reveals something else as well: the essential insights into contemporary politics, power, and conflict that are to be found where crime and media collide. In this light Media and Crime becomes required reading not only for students and scholars of crime and media, but for anyone interested in understanding the dangerous dynamics of the late modern world' - Jeff Ferrell, Texas Christian University, US, and University of Kent, UK
'This second edition of Jewkes' treatise Media and Crime is the most comprehensive volume to date on the major issues involved. Analytically incisive and international as well as national in orientation, it is a must for everyone preoccupied with media and crime, and for all students engaged in the area' - Thomas Mathiesen, Professor of Sociology of Law, University of Oslo, Norway
'The first edition set the standard for textbooks on crime and media. This revised edition has raised the bar. Erudite, authoritative, interdisciplinary and always engaging, Yvonne Jewkes' Media and Crime transports students to a genuinely interesting place and makes other textbooks seem rather dull in comparison. It looks set to remain a classroom favourite for some time to come' - Chris Greer, City University, UK.
