Description

Through the centuries, prisons were closed institutions, full of secrets and shrouded in mystery. But modern media culture has opened the gates. Dawn Cecil explores decades of popular culture--from Golden Age Hollywood films to YouTube videos, from newspapers to beer labels, hip-hop music, and children's books--to reveal how prison imagery shapes our understanding of who commits crimes, why, and how the criminal justice system should respond
