Which is your favorite, Las Vegas, Miami or New York? The CSI television series is in all three places. Reading CSI: Under the Microscope, edited by Michael Allen, looks at each series and the entire franchise in a critical way, to discuss all aspects of making, viewing, selling and marketing the program in the United States and overseas.

From official release/information:

Book Description: Attracting nearly 17 million viewers regularly, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is America's number one show. With two spin-off series, the CSI franchise has sparked an unprecedented global television success. Reading CSI brings together for the first time critical discussions of all three shows from a wide range of perspectives, with contributions from journalists, television critics and pathology experts. Including a series by series episode guide for each program, this in-depth, comprehensive study seeks to understand what the CSI phenomenon means to contemporary television culture.
