Abstract

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.
The Reader is the set text for The Open University course, Youth Justice, Penality and Social Control (D864).
