From Jeffrey Dahmer to Hannibal Lecter, from John Gotti to Don Corleone, real and imagined criminals and their crimes are a mainstay of media and entertainment. This volume explores the American criminal obsession. It also looks at how popular culture portrayals of crime and criminals affect perceptions of real crime and of the criminal justice system.
