Lost Innocent and Sacrificial Delegate: The JonBenet Ramsey Murder.
Conrad, Joann
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v6 n3 p313-51 Aug 1999
Analyzes murder case of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey as emblematic of American cultural fascination with images of the innocence of children and the perfect family, and of a change in cultural self-awareness as these images prove illusionary. Considers the role of mass media in marketing a cultural fascination with sexualized images of children and a fear of abuse and danger. (JPB)
