Juvenile Justice : Youth and Crime in Australia
This book is about youth and crime in Australia, and the institutions and agencies associated with the administration of juvenile justice. It provides an overview and introduction to the main concepts and issues of juvenile justice in a way that is simple and descriptive, yet critical. It provides basic information across a broad range of areas, and in so doing, raises a number of questions about the institutions of juvenile justice and how we think about juvenile justice issues.
