Présentation de l'éditeur

  Law and Justice as Seen on TV examines the impact, significance, and social and political problems raised by the enormous onslaught of law-related television programming, both fiction and nonfiction, in the years since the rise of live televised trials as major media events. The book weaves together the various strands—media history and analysis, legal history and policy, and the national turn to the political right in the last decades—which gave birth to this trend and has kept it thriving and growing, by leaps and bounds, to the present day.  Beginning with the history of courtroom drama on TV and its various contradictions and shifts, since the late 1940s to the present, the book analyzes the various entertainment series and genres that have so proliferated in recent years, giving special attention to such popular and influential series as "Law and Order" and "Cops." The second section begins by charting the complex and contested history of the coming of cameras to the courtroom and the way in which that legal decision led to televised trials and to the rise of Court TV. It examines as especially interesting and important the major trials—such as those of the Menendez brothers, O.J. Simpson, and Timothy McVeigh—which helped to shape the way television came to frame trials and their social implications for public consumption. From there it examines major social issues—gender violence, youth crime, family dysfunction, victims' rights which, with the rise of the courtroom as a major political and television arena, have come to be viewed largely as legal issues to be discussed and determined in legal terms by Americans in general.  Accessible and lucid,  Law and Justice as Seen on TV concludes with an examination of the broad implications of this social and cultural trend, closing with some thoughts about its expansion, on television and in the actual legal arena, during the "war on terrorism" in the wake of 9/11.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Timely and perceptive look at TV's links to law 14 février 2004

I found this book to be extrmely informative and insightful about the way that today's TV shows focusing on the legal system run surprisingly parallel to the actual ways in which our criminal justice sytem has shifted from a liberal concern for civil liberties and defendants rights to an increasingly punitive focus on punishment and the presumption of guilt. Rapping has a really clear and readable writing style unusual for academics. I would recommend this anyone interested media and/or criminal and legal issues

My intent here is to demonstrate the second major thematic thrust of the book as a whole: how such stylistic and generic choices tend to lend themselves particularly well to liberal or conservative readings. &quote;

the turn to more conservative ideological slants in entertainment programming, as I will also argue, tends to produce a shift in all these genres toward more melodramatic, and often brutally violent and expressionistic styles and conventions. &quote;

In the 1950s and 1960s, the number of series featuring defense attorneys was surprisingly large. By the late 1970s, however, as I noted in the Introduction, law seriesand the arena in which issues of law and justice were negotiated in generalgave way in popularity to the new wave of sophisticated, dramatically complex cop series. &quote;
