Race, Crime and the Media encourages students to think critically about the realities of the criminal justice system, the media and race. Through a collection of original readings that address the subject in a way that is balanced and provocative, students will become aware about the power and influence of the media and the role it plays in the characterization of crimes committed about racial minorities. This book represents an effort to draw attention to the intersection of race, crime and the media, by raising questions about the influence of the media on how we think.
