About This Book

Today, questions about how and why societies punish are deeply emotive and hotly contested. In Crime and Punishment in Contemporary Culture, ClaireGrant argues that criminal justice is a key site for the negotiation of new collective identities and modes of belonging. Exploring both popular cultural forms and changes in crime policies and criminal law, Grant elaborates onnew forms of critical engagement with the politics of crime and punishment. In doing so, the book discusses:

  • teletechnologies, punishment and new collectivities
  • the cultural politics of victims rights
  • discourses on foreigners, crime and diaspora
  • terror, the death penalty and the spectacle of violence.

Crime and Punishment in Contemporary Culture makes a timely and important contribution to debate on the possibilities of justice in the media age. This book is essential reading for undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers interested in the area of crime and punishment.
