about this item

We live in a world that is increasingly characterized as risky, dangerous, and threatening. Every day, a new social issue emerges to assail our sensibilities and consciences, seemingly designed to provoke a shared sense of panic. Drawing on the popular UK Economic Social and Research Council seminar series, this book uses the concept of moral panic to examine these social issues and anxieties and the solutions to them. With an introduction by Chas Critcher—coeditor ofMoral Panics in the Contemporary World—and contributions from both well-known and up-and-coming researchers and practitioners, this book offers a stimulating and innovative overview of moral panic ideas for students and practitioners and an accessible introduction to the concept for a wider general public.
