This new book tackles the long-standing political obsession with youthful offending of all types. Providing comprehensive coverage of the subject, the book brings together work on youth cultures and subcultures with that on youth crime and the criminal justice system. Aswell as providing an analysis of the nature of juvenile offending and the developments within the juvenile justice system, the book places 'youthfulness within an historical framework, attempting to make sense of the place of young people in Britain today. With its broader historical and sociological perspective this book will make an ideal introduction to youth crime.
