Crime and Justice, Volume 24

Youth Violence

Youth violence has become one of the most contentious and perplexing issues in current debates on crime policy, not the least because of the sharp increase in violence among young minority males since the mid-1980s.

Featuring articles by leading American and European scholars from many fields, Youth Violence provides a reliable, up-to-date, authoritative and comprehensive overview of policy issues and research developments concerning crime and violence among the young.
