Become a critical media consumer with MEDIA, CRIME, AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE! With the rise of media's role in reporting crime and using crime as entertainment, the importance of the interplay between the mass media news and entertainment systems and the criminal justice system may be greater today than ever before. This criminal justice text provides a bridge between relevant mass media research findings and criminal justice practice and corrects common misconceptions regarding the mass media's effects on crime and justice. An end-of-book glossary, chapter-by-chapter objectives, classroom discussion questions, and additional readings help you master the material and prepare for tests.
