MEDIA REVIEWS

"In Crime, Justice and the Media, Ian Marsh and Gaynor Melville present an authoritative, accessible and thoroughly absorbing account of the web of relationships between the media and crime, criminals and the criminal justice system. Providing a comprehensive account of relevant research and critical perspectives; and marshalling a wealth of original and fascinating examples; the book represents a key text for anyone studying, teaching or researching in the area." - Bill Osgerby, Professor in Media Culture and Communications, London Metropolitan University.

"As the interest in, and the need for, critically reflecting on the role the media in the dissemination of crime information continues to grow, Marsh and Melville's text provides a practical overview of the field for teachers and undergraduate students alike. Through the use of plain language, contemporary examples, and points of discussion, the text introduces students to some of the key theories and issues relating to crime in the media." - Dr Alyce McGovern, Senior Lecturer in Criminology, The University of New South Wales.
