About the Author

Yvonne Jewkes is Professor of Criminology at the University of Bath and Honorary Visiting Professor at the University of Melbourne. She has been carrying out prison research-much of it ethnography-for over 20 years and has spent the last decade researching and writing about prison architecture and design and their potential to rehabilitate. She has recently held two Economic and Social Research Council grants to study these topics and has worked as a consultant to prison architects and senior prison service personnel around the world. She has published extensively on various aspects of prisons and imprisonment, including (with Ben Crewe and Jamie Bennett) The Handbook on Prisons (2nd ed., 2016, Routledge). With Ben Crewe and Thomas Ugelvik, she is the Founding Editor of the new SAGE journal Incarceration.


In Media and Crime one of the field's very best scholars offers a critical panorama of crime and media, from prison films to surveillance culture and cybercrime. As intellectually sophisticated as it is narratively engaging, Yvonne Jewkes' Media and Crime is a masterful must-read.
-- Professor Jeff Ferrell
Yvonne Jewkes' Media & Crime has established itself as the key text in this important area of criminology. This new edition incorporates pivotal developments in a rapidly transforming media landscape, and will prove an invaluable resource for criminology students and researchers alike.
