In August 2005, the world looked on in horror as thirty-five residents of St. Rita’s Nursing Home perished beneath the rising waters of Hurricane Katrina. Louisiana’s attorney general immediately targeted the owners of St. Rita’s, Sal and Mabel Mangano, for prosecution. A national media frenzy erupted, labeling the couple as selfish, cold-hearted killers, willing to let beloved parents and grandparents drown—but the reality was much different. Flood of Lies tells the real story of the Manganos: a couple who sacrificed everything to save the lives of their beloved residents.

<div><em>Spreadable Media</em> maps fundamental changes taking place in our contemporary media environment, a space where corporations no longer tightly control media distribution and many of us are directly involved in the circulation of content. It contrasts “stickiness”—aggregating attention in centralized places—with “spreadability”—dispersing content widely through both formal and informal networks, some approved, many unauthorized. Stickiness has been the measure of success in the broadcast era (and has been carried over to the online world), but “spreadability” describes the ways content travels through social media.</div><br /><div> </div><br /><div>Following up on the hugely influential <em>Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide</em>, this book challenges some of the prevailing metaphors and frameworks used to describe contemporary media, from biological metaphors like “memes” and “viral” to the concept of “Web 2.0” and the popular notion of “influencers.”<em> Spreadable Media</em> examines the nature of audience engagement,the environment of participation, the way appraisal creates value, and the transnational flows at the heart of these phenomena. It delineates the elements that make content more spreadable and highlights emerging media business models built for a world of participatory circulation. The book also explores the internal tensions companies face as they adapt to the new communication reality and argues for the need to shift from “hearing” to “listening” in corporate culture.</div><br /><div> </div><br /><div>Drawing on examples from film, music, games, comics, television, transmedia storytelling, advertising, and public relations industries, among others—from both the U.S. and around the world—the authors illustrate the contours of our current media environment. They highlight the vexing questions content creators must tackle and the responsibilities we all face as citizens in a world where many of us regularly circulate media content. Written for any and all of us who actively create and share media content,<em> Spreadable Media</em> provides a clear understanding of how people are spreading ideas and the implications these activities have for business, politics, and everyday life.</div>

Omniprésente et diffusée en flux continu, l’information rythme nos vies et accapare notre attention. Cette tendance est renforcée par l’apparition d’Internet à la fin du XXe siècle et par la multiplication des écrans. La presse écrite et l’audiovisuel ont toutefois conservé une place essentielle dans l’univers médiatique.<br /><br />L’ouvrage fait le point sur l’encadrement juridique des médias et des informations communiquées. Il analyse les libertés à leur fondement : la liberté d’expression, mais aussi la liberté d’entreprise tant il est vrai que les médias sont devenus un secteur économique à part entière. Les régimes de responsabilité et la régulation d’Internet font également l’objet de développements approfondis.<br /><br />Juristes et praticiens des métiers de la communication trouveront ici une somme d’informations, notamment sur la déontologie journalistique, les droits d’auteur des journalistes, la calomnie et la diffamation, la notion de bonnes mœurs, la protection de la vie privée, de l’honneur et de la réputation, les conditions et procédures de créations des médias audiovisuels ou la responsabilité des intermédiaires sur Internet.<br /><br />L’ouvrage examine non seulement les règles de droit belge, et plus particulièrement celles applicables à Bruxelles et en région de langue française, mais il s’appuie aussi largement sur le droit européen, tant de l’Union européenne que du Conseil de l’Europe.

Criminology Goes to the Movies: Crime Theory and Popular Culture

Customer Reviews
<P>From a look at classics like Psycho and Double Indemnity to recent films like Traffic and Thelma & Louise, Nicole Rafter and Michelle Brown show that criminological theory is produced not only in the academy, through scholarly research, but also in popular culture, through film. Criminology Goes to the Movies connects with ways in which students are already thinking criminologically through engagements with popular culture, encouraging them to use the everyday world as a vehicle for theorizing and understanding both crime and perceptions of criminality. The first work to bring a systematic and sophisticated criminological perspective to bear on crime films, Rafter and Brown’s book provides a fresh way of looking at cinema, using the concepts and analytical tools of criminology to uncover previously unnoticed meanings in film, ultimately making the study of criminological theory more engaging and effective for students while simultaneously demonstrating how theories of crime circulate in our mass-mediated worlds. The result is an illuminating new way of seeing movies and a delightful way of learning about criminology.  <BR></P>

<div>Many<br />proclaimed the “end of television” in the early years of the twenty-first<br />century, as capabilities and features of the boxes that occupied a central<br />space in American living rooms for the preceding fifty years were radically<br />remade. In this revised, second edition<br />of her definitive book, Amanda D. Lotz proves that rumors of the death of<br />television were greatly exaggerated and explores how new distribution and<br />viewing technologies have resurrected the medium. Shifts in the basic practices<br />of making and distributing television have not been hastening its demise, but<br />are redefining what we can do with television, what we expect from it, how we<br />use it—in short, revolutionizing it.<br /></div><br /><div><br /></div><br /><div> </div><br /><div>Television,<br />as both a technology and a tool for cultural storytelling, remains as important<br />today as ever, but it has changed in fundamental ways. <em>The Television Will Be Revolutionized </em>provides a sophisticated<br />history of the present, examining television in what Lotz terms the<br />“post-network” era while providing frameworks for understanding the continued<br />change in the medium. The second edition addresses adjustments throughout the<br />industry wrought by broadband delivered television such as Netflix, YouTube,<br />and cross-platform initiatives like TV Everywhere, as well as how technologies<br />such as tablets and smartphones have changed how and where we view. Lotz begins<br />to deconstruct the future of different kinds of television—exploring how<br />“prized content,” live television sports and contests, and linear viewing may<br />all be “television,” but very different types of television for both viewers<br />and producers.<br /></div><br /><div> </div><br /><div>Through<br />interviews with those working in the industry, surveys of trade publications,<br />and consideration of an extensive array of popular shows, Lotz takes us behind<br />the screen to explore what is changing, why it is changing, and why the changes<br />matter.</div><br /><p><img src="http://nyupress.org/teachguide/pdf_icon.gif" alt="" />   Instructor's Guide</p>

In 1914, my mother, the youngest of 12 children, was born at 104 Bayard Street. When I grew up, I lived around the corner at 134 White Street. During my youth, the area was called Little Italy. But at the time of my mother’s birth, it was still called the Five Points.</h3><h3><br /></h3><h3>The term “Five Points” was coined in the early part of the nineteenth century because the area had at its center a five-point intersection formed by Orange Street (now Baxter Street), Cross Street (then Park and now Mosco Street - Frank Mosco was my Little League baseball coach), Anthony Street (Now Worth), Little Water Street (which no longer exists), and Mulberry Street. </h3><h3> <br /></h3><h3>Across the street from the front entrance to my White Street tenement building, and close enough to reach with three or four leaping bounds, was the imposing city prison called the Tombs. The dark and dreary structure was the third incarnation of a major jailhouse in this area, the first two being located one block to the west on Center Street. The Tombs played an integral part of the Five Points’ sordid history. Hundreds of dastardly individuals were hung at the Tombs, and hundreds of thousands more had the Tombs as their mailing address, some permanently.</h3><h3><br /></h3><h3>In 1896, at the prodding of journalist Jacob Riis, the hideous Mulberry Bend was demolished by the city, and Columbus Park was built in its stead. Before then, the Five Points was predominantly Irish, and it is estimated that 10,000 – 15,000 people, mostly Irish, lived in horrendous squalor in the four square blocks that of “The Bend.” When the Bend’s buildings were razed, the Irish were displaced. Most moved north to Hell’s Kitchen, the area bounded by 42nd Street and 59th Streets, between 7th and 12th Avenues.</h3><h3><br /></h3><h3>After the demolition of Mulberry Bend, the Five Points became the domain of Italian immigrants sprinkled with a few hundred Chinese, who claimed parts of Mott, Pell, and Doyers Streets as their turf. In fact, over the first two decades of the twentieth century, the Five Points district evolved into two intertwining ethnic neighborhoods: Little Italy and Chinatown. It wasn’t until the mid-1920s that the term “Five Points” started to fade from the vocabulary of the area’s residents. </h3><h3><br /></h3><h3>Most remnants of the original Five Points are long gone. But the names of its former inhabitants still flicker across the lips of many New Yorkers, never in a flattering way. </h3><h3><br /></h3><h3>So, fire up your Kindle and read about some of the most distasteful creatures ever to roam the face of the earth. They all inhabited my old Five Points neighborhood in times gone by. </h3><h3><br /></h3><h2>Scroll to the top of this page and GRAB your copy now!</h2><h2></h2>
