Young Offenders provides one of the most in-depth studies of young males seeking, if often failing, to find a life beyond crime and punishment. Through rich interview data of young offenders over a ten year period, this book explores the complex personal and situational factors that promote and derail the desistance process.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"It goes some way to filling the significant gap in qualitative in-depth research on young people attempting to stop offending, and it brings their voices, experiences and the challenges they have faced, and continue to face, to light. ... this book set out the issues in a very clear and thoughtful way, but in turn also sets out tangible solutions. This is an essential read for criminologists and anyone working in criminal justice who wants to make a difference." (Briege Nugent, Rutgers University, clcjbooks.rutgers.edu, March, 2017)
