'A vivid testimony to David Wilson's huge and bold contribution to the creation of a 'public criminology'... This modest book deserves much more attention and should be widely used in teaching, especially first year undergraduate criminology, to bridge the gap between emotional response and analytic sense': Colin Sumner, Editor of CrimeTalk and Head of the School of Sociology and Philosophy, UCC, Cork, Ireland. 'This significant contribution to criminological studies offers a text where both scholar and common reader can understand the issues regarding crime reporting and society... while the term "public criminology" has recently gained popularity, it can convincingly be argued that Wilson was a public criminologist before it was in vogue': Howard Journal of Criminal Justice. 'Full of observations and insights that reward careful reading, but more than a source of reflection, it is also an attempt to inspire, incite and provoke criminologists into action': Prison Service Journal 'A provocative, readable and interesting text that straddles several areas of criminological theory and specialism, but strikes first and foremost as a stimulating read and a book which makes you think more about public criminology. What it should be and whether and how it should be undertaken. For that reason it should be one of those at the forefront of debate on academic criminology's function and purpose and I hope it enjoys a sufficient readership and acts to re-invigorate and stimulate future debates about the role and function of "public criminology"': Probation Journal 'An excellent addition for those students studying subjects with a focus on cultural criminology. An interesting and engrossing text and an excellent addition for the discipline': Paul Taylor, University of Chester 'An inspiring and intelligent read': Donal MacIntyre (from the Foreword). As featured on the BBC Radio 2 Jeremy Vine Show.
