Editorial Reviews

Review

'Yvonne Jewkes' Media and Crime is a remarkable book-a book remarkable for its critical, comprehensive engagement with the most important of contemporary issues. As one of the top scholars in her field, Jewkes provides a panoramic view across the full sweep of media and crime, in all their many forms and entanglements, from television crime coverage to internet search engines and situations of surveillance. Taking the reader with her across this complex cultural terrain, she reveals something else as well: the essential insights into contemporary politics, power, and conflict that are to be found where crime and media collide. In this light Media and Crime becomes required reading not only for students and scholars of crime and media, but for anyone interested in understanding the dangerous dynamics of the late modern world' - Jeff Ferrell, Texas Christian University, US, and University of Kent, UK


'This second edition of Jewkes' treatise Media and Crime is the most comprehensive volume to date on the major issues involved. Analytically incisive and international as well as national in orientation, it is a must for everyone preoccupied with media and crime, and for all students engaged in the area' - Thomas Mathiesen, Professor of Sociology of Law, University of Oslo, Norway


'The first edition set the standard for textbooks on crime and media. This revised edition has raised the bar. Erudite, authoritative, interdisciplinary and always engaging, Yvonne Jewkes' Media and Crime transports students to a genuinely interesting place and makes other textbooks seem rather dull in comparison. It looks set to remain a classroom favourite for some time to come' - Chris Greer, City University, UK.

About the Author

Yvonne Jewkes is Professor of Criminology at the University of Leicester, UK. Her research interests lie in two broad areas. The first is the intersections between crime, media and culture and the role of popular media discourses as sites of social inclusion/ exclusion. Her other main area of expertise is prisons and the sociology of imprisonment, especially prison design and its influence on the lives of prisoners and staff; and prison culture, including social networks, constructions of masculine identities and flows of power in prisons. She has published extensively in both areas, and will shortly publish the third edition of Media and Crime (Sage), Media and Crime in the US (co-authored with Travis Linnemann, Sage) and The Handbook on Prisons, second edition (with Jamie Bennett and Ben Crewe, Routledge).  

Yvonne was Founding Editor (with Chris Greer and Jeff Ferrell) of Crime, Media, Culture: An International Journal and has guest edited (with Ben Crewe) a special issue of Punishment & Society on ‘The Pains of Imprisonment Revisited’, December 2011, 13(5); and a special issue of Qualitative Inquiry on ‘Doing prison research differently’, April 2014, 20(4).  Yvonne is currently conducting a three-year ESRC funded study of prison architecture, design and technology (with Dominique Moran) and is an Honorary Fellow in Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne.
