Texte du rabat

High profile miscarriages of justice have become focus of much recent writing on criminal justice. Such literature ignores an important paradox: when justice is contested and uncertain, how can we speak meaningfully of miscarriage of justice? This book addresses this question and finds an answer to it in the relationship between the legal construction of criminal justice and the reporting of it in the media.
