The link between crime and the media is a longstanding one. Indeed, crime is one of the mainstays of traditional and contemporary media, alongside politics and sports. This volume of the Advances in Criminology, Criminal Justice, and Penology series includes a series of contributions that examine a number of crimes, which include cases that are both notorious and interesting. The volume has contributions from a number of eminent criminologists, who have a combined expertise in the field which lends itself to a collection of both depth and variety of discussion and analysis. As criminology has become more popular, it is now a topic that engenders a great deal of media coverage, with films, documentaries, podcasts, and even whole channels dedicated to famous and infamous cases. While this increase in popularity is welcome, it also necessitates a greater level of expertise and analysis.
