Book News Annotation:

Filling the need for a single resource on the subject, editor Greer (Sociology, City University London) has put together a massive volume of key readings that examine the intersection between crime and media. Dealing with a range of issues involving criminology, media, and culture, essays are organized into six broad categories: understanding media; researching media; crime, newsworthiness, and news; crime, entertainment and creativity; effects, influence, and moral panic; and cybercrime, surveillance and risk. Greer's introductions for sections and readings provide context and help readers understand how each article contributes to the debates in the field. This book is an excellent resource for students and academics studying crime, media, culture, surveillance, and control. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This engaging and timely collection gathers together for the first time key and classic readings in the ever-expanding area of crime and media. Comprizing a carefully distilled selection of the most important contributions to the field, Crime and Media: A Reader tackles a wide range of issues including: understanding media; researching media; crime, newsworthiness and news; crime, entertainment and creativity; effects, influence and moral panic; and cybercrime, surveillance and risk. Specially devized introductory and linking sections contextualize each reading and evaluate its contribution to the field, both individually and in relation to competing approaches and debates.

This book provides a single source around which criminology, media and cultural studies modules can be structured, an invaluable revision and consultation guide for students, and an extremely useful resource for scholars writing and researching across a wide range of relevant fields.

Accessible yet challenging, and packed with additional pedagogical devices, Crime and Media: A Reader will be an invaluable resource for students and academics studying crime, media, culture, surveillance and control.
