Summary

MEDIA, CRIME, AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE is the definitive book on media and criminal justice. With the ever-increasing role of media in both reporting crime and shaping it into infotainment, the interplay between contemporary media and the criminal justice system is greater today than ever before. With impeccable scholarship, a direct and approachable style, and an engaging format complete with visual examples and a collection of sidebar material that complements the main discussions, author Ray Surette comprehensively surveys this interplay while emphasizing that people use media-provided knowledge to construct a picture of the world, and then act based on this constructed reality.
