How is the modern world shaping young people and youth crime? What impact is this having on the latest policies and practice? Are current youth justice services working? With contributions from leading researchers in the field, this book offers an insightful, scholarly and critical analysis of such key issues. "Youth Offending and Youth Justice" engages constructively with current policy and practice debates, tackling issues such as the criminalisation and penalisation of youth, sentencer decision-making, the incarceration of young people and the role of public opinion. It also features an applied focus on professional practice. Drawing on a wide range of high-quality research, this book will enrich the work of practitioners, managers, policy-makers, students and academics in social work, youth work, criminal justice and youth justice in the UK and beyond. This topical series examines areas of particular interest to those in social and community work and related fields. Each book draws together different aspects of the subject, highlighting relevant research and drawing out implications for policy and practice.

Review:

This is an excellent text in every possible regard... The editors gave little in the way of guidance as to what they were expecting - a brave (or foolish) course of action that could have led to a unfocused piece (or a great deal of re-writting) but has resulted in an excellent, coherent, insightful addition to the growing body of critical literature surrounding youth offending and youth justice. This slim volume is up there with the best works in this field. Author: British Journal of Social Work

This is an excellent book, which well maintains the high standard we associate with the name of Jessica Kingsley. It succeeds in its aim of being both scholarly and accessible. Author: Quakers in Criminal Justice

For those preferring a more critical analysis and who are ambitious to work in a landscape illuminated by research and what the co-editors might call "ethical principles", this book will be welcomed... More importantly, it is relevant across the range of disciplines and professions involved in youth justice and prevention... The co-editors conclude with an excellent retrospective analysis of the book as a whole, providing commentary on the themes and some useful messages for policy and practice development. All this is crucial reading at a time when youth justice is facing big changes, with few elements of practice, or governance, likely to remain stable. Author: Children & Young People Now
