The Oxford Encyclopedia of Crime, Media and Popular Culture

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Crime, Media and Popular Culture is a collection of over 120 entries written by an assembly of nearly two hundred leading international scholars. It asks how do people imagine crime and punishment? How do they go about thinking of deviance and reactions to it? To answer this, contributors look at media influences on the ways people think about crime and punishment--influences that include photography, movies, newspapers, detective novels, television, graphic arts, broadsides, myth, paintings, murals, the internet, and social media. It offers a foundational space for understanding the cultural life and imaginative force and power of crime and punishment. All of the articles appear online as part of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Criminology.
