Beginning with an excerpt from Karl Marx, and characterizing "crime" as a critical instrument that both defines and constructs culture, Ludmer goes far beyond understanding crime and detective fiction as a genre and exposes how literature - both high art and mass culture - function as a hypertext of social reality. She elucidates the relationship of crime and punishment to the formation of law, the body, and the modern state."--Jacket." ;
