    1. Interesting overview and look at how the media has played a role in egging along moral panics in Britain between the 1950s-1990s. Although the phenomenon still seems to exist today, the book is a bit outdated in terms of how easily information is accessible on the internet and the advent of news networks on television.

    2. I believe this is an update on examples of moral panics that happened in Britain after the landmark works on Moral Panics that came before.
