Crime and Media, Hardback Book

Crime and Media Hardback

Edited by Yvonne Jewkes

Part of the Sage Library of Criminology series


The relationship between the media and crime is a topic of extremely lively debate and research internationally. With Yvonne Jewkes' background in both media studies and criminology, she introduces readers to the most salient themes and puts together the definitive collection on the topic. Crime and Media includes the most important and influential work from contemporary and classic literature that traverses media studies and criminology. Volume I overviews the theoretical contours that have shaped the study of crime and the media and explores both production and consumption of crime-related media in the shape of news, documentary and current affairs, soap, sitcom and docu-drama. Volume II explores notions of 'newsworthiness' and considers the news values that underpin media representations of crime. Volume III discusses the innovative media technologies and surveillance technologies that are changing all our lives.
