Description: Media and Criminal Justice: The CSI Effect illustrates how media coverage and television programs influence the publicrsquo;s perception of criminal justice. The CSI Effect can be characterized as the phenomenon whereby fiction is mistaken for reality and the assumption that all criminal cases can be easily solved through the employment of hi-tech forensic science such as crime scene investigation and DNA testing as depicted on television crime shows. The author explores common misconceptions and their consequences, to help readers towards a critical analysis of information promoted by the media and entertainment. This text provides comprehensive and balanced coverage of timely events in crime scene investigation, prosecutorial discretion, and wrongful convictions. Key Features: Current real-world examples provide reliable documented information and data, to help readers reach informed decisions about important issues. Discusses principle theories and scholarly research of criminal justice procedures, and how they can be applied to new present circumstances and experiences. Accompanied by downloadable PowerPoint slides for instructors.
