In doing so, the book discusses:teletechnologies, punishment and new collectivitiesthe cultural politics of victims rightsdiscourses on foreigners, crime and diasporaterror, 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.
