Psychology and Crime

Series Editors: Jennifer Hammer, Brian Bornstein & Monica Miller

This series provides the academic, the professional, and the lay public with well-written scholarly overviews and discussions of the latest advances in theory, research, and practice in various areas of psychology and crime. Each author will provide a review of the status of the field and major developments to help readers in their understanding and decision-making.

Critical Cultural Communication

General Editors: Jonathan Gray, Aswin Punathambekar & Adrienne Shaw

This series aims to publish scholarship that takes critical-cultural approaches to explore the impact of media in varied contexts worldwide. The series focuses on the everyday lived experiences of audiences in their interaction with different kinds of media—old and new, state and private, elite and popular, global, regional, and national—and on emergent as well as residual cultures of media production and the economic, political, and socio-cultural affordances which they help to create. The series emphasizes scholarship that takes a range of interpretive and qualitative approaches and focuses on issues of race and ethnicity, nationalism, class, gender, sexuality, and ability.
