High profile miscarriages of justice have become focus of much recent writing on criminal justice. Such literature ignores an important paradox: when justice is contested and uncertain, how can we speak meaningfully of miscarriage of justice? This book addresses this question and finds an answer to it in the relationship between the legal construction of criminal justice and the reporting of it in the media.

Review:

`... an interesting and unusual contribution to our understanding of the way in which the criminal justice system and the media deal with wrongful conviction... The analysis of the media involvement is original and meticulous .' Social and Legal Studies 10 (4)

`for the most part the book adopts a convincing style and is well referenced and polished to a high editorial standard ... contains many valuable incidental insights and suggestive observations ... this thought-provoking book makes a significant contribution to better understanding ... Understanding Miscarriages of Justice can be recommended without hesitation as required reading on the subject' Law Quarterly Review 1 July 2001

`... can be recommended without hesitation as required reading on the subject.' Law Quarterly Review

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2000. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Understanding Miscarriages of Justice explores a paradox. In a society in which justice is uncertain and contested, how can we talk meaningfully about miscarriage of justice? The book examines the structural conditions that inevitably produce high-profile miscarriages of justice. The thesis of the book is that there is a tension between the rhetoric of justice as understood outside of law, particularly in the media, and legal practice. Despite evidence that miscarriages of justice must be a normal and expected consequence of imperfect arrangements for investigations, prosecutions, and trials, they are ordinarily understood as exceptional and unacceptable events.Periodically, however, miscarriages are seen not as exceptional, but widespread and normal. At such moments, the legitimacy of the criminal justice process is called into question in the media. These moments are constructed in the media as a crisis of public confidence in criminal justice. With the mass media's vivid interest in crime and punishment and their relentless reconstruction of relevant facts, the courts fact-finding monopoly is fundamentally contested. While this happens in all phases of a criminal process, the contest becomes particularly dramatic when after a criminal conviction the mass media continue their investigation and discover, according to their criteria of truth, a miscarriage of justice. But there is no set of common criteria that would allow for thedesign of rational procedures to end the contest. There is no forum, no procedure, and no set of criteria that would make possible a common search for truth. Seller Inventory # APC9780198298939
