First published in 1994. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
A sure-to-be-controversial anthology that 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, and media-produced events. The essays suggest how oppositional discourse can expose biased media images and replace them with demystified images of crime and justice based on reason rather than emotion.
