Screening Justice: Canadian Crime Films, Culture and Society
Screening Justice: Canadian Crime Films, Culture and Society (Fernwood Publishing).
What do Canadian films say about crime and justice in Canada? What purpose to Canadian crime films serve politically and culturally?
Screening Justice is a scholarly exploration of films that focus on crime and justice in Canada that was released earlier this month. Crime films are pivotal for understanding and shaping Canadian sensibilities by setting out widely available templates for thinking about crime and justice in Canadian society.
Spanning disciplines and examining films from across Canada, Screening Justice is the first comprehensive Canadian volume on crime films that takes up cultural criminology’s call for more critical scholarly analyses of the interplay between crime, culture and society.
