Youth Justice provides:
· a critical introduction to the intellectual reframing of the history, theory, policy and practice of youth justice.
· an essential resource of key debates and controversies from across the range of disciplines engaged in the study of youth in the social sciences
· editorial essays at the beginning of each substantive section of the volume
· specially commissioned chapters at the end of each section, which place the readings in their theoretical and historical context.
