About this product
- DescriptionAn exploration of the ways we talk about - and why we worry about - new crimes and new forms of victimization. Focusing on so-called random crimes such as freeway shootings, gang violence, and wilding, it shows how new crime problems emerge and how some quickly fade from public attention while others spread and become enduring subjects of concern.
- Author BiographyJoel Best is Professor of Sociology at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. He is the author of Threatened Children: Rhetoric and Concern about Child-Victims (1990).
