Notorious H.I.V. : The Media Spectacle Of Nushawn Williams, Hardback Book

Notorious H.I.V. : The Media Spectacle Of Nushawn Williams Hardback


Notorious H.I.V. also traces the impact of such high-profile cases on communities.

Shevory provides a nuanced portrait of the hard economic and cultural realities of Jamestown, New York, and, drawing on Williams's narratives, of the life of a lower-level drug dealer in a small upstate city.

His work shows how media coverage robs individuals like Williams of their humanity, creating a pervasive atmosphere of threat that warps the integrity and fairness of the criminal justice and penal system.
