Crime and Law in Media Culture
by Sheila Brown
How are crime and the law defined by media culture? Why do we need media crime? What is the impact of cyberculture on crime and the law? The range and scope of contemporary media forms are vast, but what is the place of law and criminology in relation to them? The whole of society, including crime and criminal justice, is embraced by media culture. 'The media' are not just a set of institutions, but constitute a way of existence that defines crime and legal forms. In short, the book sets out to assess how crime and the law, and our understanding of them, are produced and reproduced, disturbed, challenged and changed through media culture. The author organizes her inquiry around substantive topic areas set within a theoretical framework. From soaps to President Clinton, globalism to cyberworlds, she provides an accessible critique of 'cultural theory' and a theoretically coherent examination of the relationship between crime, law, media and culture. In all, this innovative and engaging text, containing a wide range of lively examples, aims to open up the boundaries between the more traditional aspects of law and criminology, and the broader concerns of sociological and cultural studies.
