How can youth justice refocus its attention on the rights and perspectives of young people in transition? Foundations for Youth Justice outlines youth justice practices in their current state of flux in the United Kingdom as New Labour policies receive direction under the vastly different Coalition Government. Anne Robinson explores opportunities for a fresh orientation that places young people at the center. She outlines the risks and problems that modern society creates for them and asks when, and how, society should respond to youth behaviors that cause harm to others. The result is a bold—and realistic—remodelling of youth justice practices. 
Tim Bateman, University of Bedfordshire
“As the New Labour youth justice orthodoxy begins to unravel, Robinson delivers precisely what is required. She offers a radical but realistic prescription for youth justice practice based on an understanding of young people as active protagonists in determining their own future, albeit in adverse circumstances. The book deserves a wide audience.”
