    DescriptionIn Making Trouble, leading scholars in criminology, sociology, criminal justice, women's studies, and social history explore the mediated cultural dynamics that govern image construction and understanding of a wide range of contemporary controversies (for instance, drug dealing, freight train graffi ti, anti-abortion violence, etc.).

    Review quote
    ""Making Trouble" is the latest in a series of collections on cultural criminology compiled by Northern Arizona University criminal justice professor Jeff Ferrell and various co-editors (in this case Neil Websdale). Ferrell, one of criminology's brightest Young Turks, is the leading exponent of cultural criminology. "Making Trouble" is overall a smart, fresh and insightful collection, Ferrell and company's best effort yet in their ongoing attempt to develop a cultural criminology that captures the excitement and turmoil of a postmodern age." --Michael Petrunik, "Canadian Journal of Sociology Online"
