This book is concerned with how public opinion, punitivism, and the media come together. The various contributors provide an in-depth analysis of the ways in which media representations of prison influence perceptions of prison and punishment in popular culture. The authors come from a variety of backgrounds with some working in, with, and against the penal system and thus offer an interdiscipinary account of the prison-media nexus. Although this book does make a significant contribution to the debate over media representations of prison and punishment, it is, by no means, a vehicle for change, as it does not move beyond the obvious and long-standing argument of media misrepresentation.
