Cultural Expressions of Evil and Wickedness: Wrath, Sex, Crime, is a fascinating study of the a-temporal nature of evil in the West. The international academics and researchers who have contributed to this text not only concentrate on political, social and legally sanctioned cruelty from the past and present, but also explore the nature of moral transgression in contemporary art, media and literature. Although many forms and practices of what might be called `evil' are analysed, all are bound by violence and/or the sexually perverse. As this book demonstrates, the old news media axiom, `if it bleeds it leads,' also extends to the larger pool of popular culture. This absorbing volume will be of interest to anyone who has ever pondered on the exotic, extraordinary and surreal twists of human wickedness.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"what is most welcome about this book is its relevance to the present world climate in which the construction of `evil' is still and ever increasingly used for right-wing political ends." in: LIMINA, A Journal of Historical and Cultural Studies, Vol. 10, 2004 "covers a very broad spectrum and offers some interesting analyses on diverse topics ... an interesting attempt to place the analysis of evil within a broad approach to the study of popular culture." in: Screening the Past - An international, refereed, electronic journal of visual media and history, 2004
