I found this book very useful as a reference point for my studies, I have used this book alongside my generic criminology textbook to understand specific key points in relation to the media and what it means to the society in relation to crime.
I found the section on the media and fear of crime very explanatory and also the section about crime watch. I have used quotes from the book as a part of an assignment and have also made several notes to aid my study. I found the authors writing style easy to understand and didn't leave me asking to many questions about the quality of the text.
This is the first book in this series I have purchased and I do think that to collect the whole series as they are produced will cost a small fortune however I feel you get what you pay for and would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to gain further knowledge in this specific field.
