MEDIA REVIEWS

"The main positive in this book is the constant inclusion of an extensive range of international empirical studies, and thus the strength of the book lies in its strong and consistent evidence base, from the key studies to more specialized but equally interesting smaller studies. It balances broad discussion with more complex analysis of specific topics in youth justice, drawing throughout on a wide-ranging library of empirical studies to inform the reader of the theoretical debates."- Vici Armitage, British Journal of Criminology
