304 pages




Law scholars extend the study of law and justice on television from the US--where most of the the little research has been conducted--to 14 countries, and map out exactly what kind of law-centered television programming there was in November 2014. They examine all three phases of the legal process--apprehension (police focus), adjudication (lawyer focus) and disposition (prison/punishment focus)--in all legally themed programming, including drama, reality show, documentaries, and others). Across the countries, they find, the heaviest television focus rests on apprehension or police work. A special index describes all the law and justice programming that people in the 14 countries were able to access during November 2014--a list not available elsewhere. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
