This text is the definitive work on media and criminal justice. Its scholarship is impeccable, its style direct and approachable, and its format engaging and complete with visual examples and a collection of lighter sidebar material to complement the main discussions. 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. Surette comprehensively explores this interplay and emphasizes the fact that people use knowledge obtained from the media to build a picture of the world and then proceed to base their actions on this constructed image.
