It was Stanley Cohen´s classic account, first published in the early 1970s and regularly revised, that brought the term ´moral panic´ into widespread discussion. It is an outstanding investigation of the way in which the media and often those in a position of political power define a condition, or group, as a threat to societal values and interests. Fanned by screaming media headlines, Cohen brilliantly demonstrates how this leads to such groups being marginalised and vilified in the popular imagination, inhibiting rational debate about solutions to the social problems such groups represent. Furthermore, he argues that moral panics go even further by identifying the very fault lines of power in society.

Folk Devils and Moral Panics: The Creation of the Mods and Rockers (Routledge Classics)
Author:

Cohen, Stanley

Title:

Folk Devils and Moral Panics: The Creation of the Mods and Rockers (Routledge Classics)

ISBN:

Stanely Cohen's study of deviant groups - society's "folk devils" - and the public and media reaction to them, is widely hailed as a classic of its kind. With great insight he reviews recent theory and criticism about the concept of "moral panics" and discusses the moral panics surrounding the folk devils of recent times: ecstasy and designer drugs; the death of James Bulger; the "Name and Shame" campaign against suspected paedophiles; and the vilification of "bogus" asylum seekers.
