9780415813907: Crime, Justice and the Media

Crime, Justice and the Media examines and analyses the relationship between the media and crime, criminals and the criminal justice system. This expanded and fully updated second edition considers how crime and criminals have been portrayed by the media through history, applying different theoretical perspectives to the way crime, criminals and justice are reported.

The second edition of Crime, Justice and the Media focuses on the media representation of a range of different areas of crime and criminal justice, including:

  • new media technology e.g. social network sites
  • moral panics over specific crimes and criminals e.g. youth crime, cybercrime, paedophilia
  • media portrayal of victims of crime and criminals
  • how the media represent criminal justice agencies e.g. the police and prison service.

This book offers a clear, accessible and comprehensive analysis of theoretical thinking on the relationship between the media, crime and criminal justice and a detailed examination of how crime, criminals and others involved in the criminal justice process are portrayed by the media. With exercises, questions and further reading in every chapter, this book encourages students to engage with and respond to the material presented, thereby developing a deeper understanding of the links between the media and criminality.

Review:

"In Crime, Justice and the Media, Ian Marsh and Gaynor Melville present an authoritative, accessible and thoroughly absorbing account of the web of relationships between the media and crime, criminals and the criminal justice system. Providing a comprehensive account of relevant research and critical perspectives; and marshalling a wealth of original and fascinating examples; the book represents a key text for anyone studying, teaching or researching in the area." – Bill Osgerby, Professor in Media Culture and Communications, London Metropolitan University.

"As the interest in, and the need for, critically reflecting on the role the media in the dissemination of crime information continues to grow, Marsh and Melville's text provides a practical overview of the field for teachers and undergraduate students alike. Through the use of plain language, contemporary examples, and points of discussion, the text introduces students to some of the key theories and issues relating to crime in the media."Dr Alyce McGovern, Senior Lecturer in Criminology, The University of New South Wales.
