Law, Cinema and the Ill City : Imagining Justice and Order in Real and Fictional Cities Hardback
Edited by Anne Wagner, Le Cheng
Part of the Law, Language and Communication series
This book uses film and television as a resource for addressing the social and legal ills of the city.
It presents a range of approaches to view the ill city through cinematic and televisual characterization in urban frameworks, political contexts, and cultural settings.
Each chapter deconstructs the meaning of urban space as public space while critically generating a focus on order and justice, exploring issues such as state disorder, lawlessness and revenge.
The approach presents a careful balance between theory and application.
The original and novel ideas presented in this book will be essential reading for those interested in the presentation of law and place in cultural texts such as film.
