Growing Out of Crime

Growing Out Of Crime is a classic work about juvenile offenders and remains influential within a new criminal justice climate and despite changes in the way young people are dealt with by courts, police and youth offending teams. The arguments which this book contains about managing offending behaviour and recognising that it is often part of a youngster's maturation into adulthood have taken on a new resonance with the advent of the Youth Justice Board, youth offender panels and moves in the direction of restorative justice. It is a key work for every practitioner's library and has long been recommended reading on degree and other courses.
