Informed by the latest research in the field, the contributing authors of Youth Crime & Justice help explain the profoundly important yet uneven changes in youth justice policy and human rights that have emerged in the UK and internationally over the last decade, along with the huge challenges these pose for current efforts at progressive national and international youth justice reform.
An indispensable collection, bringing together some of the most thoughtful scholars in the field of youth justice today. Youth Crime and Justice stands out because it is both solidly grounded in the best traditions of research, and keenly attuned to contemporary (and sometimes unexpected) developments in youth justice 'on the ground'.
With its critical perspective and systematic approach towards a hugely complex issue, the second edition of Youth Crime and Justice fulfils all the expectations and needs of those teaching, studying or researching this domain. It is beyond compare, which made the waiting more than worthwhile.
As a University we are excited about new programme developments in the subject area of criminology. This is an essential key text that will provide students with a good theoretical grounding in youth crime and justice. The text is accessible and will introduce students to a range of key concepts to aid understanding and analysis.

The texts provided a comprehensive analysis of contemporary debates in the field of youth crime and youth justice. it situates youth crime and justice within the historical context and provides a critical analysis of trends in policy and practice.
This text is very relevant to one session of my module, Understanding Youth. I will be recommending some of the chapters for reading for the session on Youth Crime and Justice.
Thorough, up to date position on YJ context
The second edition of this text does not disappoint with up to date contributions from key authors in the field. In my view a number of the chapters are particularly excellent. Chapter 9 provides a detailed critical analysis of restorative justice and chapter 12 explores the impact of recent austerity measures. In short essential reading for our Youth Justice Module!
This book will assist with the angle of crime prevention well as it discusses the issue of youth crime within the justice system well.
For this module, this will be essential reading, the breadth is excellent.
This is an excellent book. I was most impressed with all the chapters. It was refreshing to read a chapter on Desistance and young people! For anyone with an interest in youth and crime I would recommend buying this book.
This second addition is a welcome update. It is appropriate for a wide range of consumers including students and researchers.
This book provides a diverse view of crime and young people that is an effective theoretical and policy background to studying criminology and childhood.
Excellent book - will be recommended reading for the developmental aspect of the course. Very recent material included and covers many of the historical aspects. Maybe some of the authors are quite critical, but nonetheless a detailed overview of the key issues.
An essential core text for any undergraduate completing a youth offending and youth justice module.
This is an indispensable text for helping learners connect theory as a guide to practice. The integration of research, historical and contemporary developments provide the building blocks to navigate the challenges presented by the increasing emphasis on risk rather than child welfare. This text is used to provide supporting context as part of the development of skills (report writing) and when examining the role of risk within our Key Themes module.
Excellent resource. Puts context to the topic area and allows student to discover the theory and practice of this subject.Feedback from students using this book is very positive
