Serassis, T., Kania, H., & Albrecht, H.-J. (Eds.). (2009). Images of Crime III : Representations of Crime and the Criminal (Vol. K 144) Schriftenreihe des Max-Planck-Instituts für ausländisches und internationales Strafrecht : Kriminologische Forschungsberichte. Berlin: Duncker & Humblot.
The Images of Crime project was originally intended to bring together scholars from various countries and representing a variety of disciplines, in order to examine and comment upon "representations of crime and the criminal in science, the arts and the media". In this third volume of the project, a team of (renown as well as aspiring) scholars from a multitude of disciplines and countries shared this cause and embraced the endeavour. The result is a collection of articles, covering a wide range of subjects, which contribute significantly to the respective debate. The contributions are not grouped in any way – since the boundaries are not always so clear – but the volume moves from more theoretical to research papers, covering images of crime, social control, moral panics, law and order, as well as the media, literature, television and the cinema.
