Back cover copy

This anthology explores the ways in which today's social problems such as homelessness, sexual assault, or drug abuse can be viewed as politically constructed, ideologically articulated, media-produced events. The readings examine the day-to-day operations of video and print journalists, analyzing how the media contributes to and reflects the dominant cultural ideologies about crime and crime control.
