Ist abweichendes Verhalten die Folge stabiler Persönlichkeitsmerkmale oder resultiert es aus variablen Bedingungen der sozialen Umwelt? Diese alte, aber immer noch aktuelle Kontroverse bildet den Hintergrund für die vorliegenden Analysen der Lebens- und Kriminalitätsgeschichte junger Wiederholungstäter aus der Tübinger Jungtäter-Vergleichsuntersuchung (TJVU). Wie die Analysen des Legalverhaltens von der Geburt bis ins späte Erwachsenenalter zeigen, kommt es bei den meisten Probanden zu zahlreichen Veränderungen und Wendepunkten in der Kriminalitätsentwicklung. Ungeachtet der Sozialisationsbedingungen in der Kindheit und Jugend lassen sich im Erwachsenenalter sehr unterschiedliche Verlaufs- und Entwicklungsmuster identifizieren. Ausschlaggebend für den Beginn, den Abbruch oder die Fortsetzung einer kriminellen Karriere, so die Hauptthese der Autoren, ist weniger die Vorgeschichte, als vielmehr die jeweilige aktuelle soziale Einbindung und die damit verbundene soziale Kontrolle eines Individuums.

Juvenile Justice: Youth and Crime in Australia explores the nature of juvenile crime and the responses of the juvenile justice system to it. The book introduces the main concepts and issues in juvenile justice and provides an overview of both the dynamics of youth crime and the institutions of social control. This new book builds on the earlier successful work Juvenile Justice: An Australian Perspective and presents an analysis of youth and crime in three parts: Part 1: "History, Theory, and Institutions", has chapters on the historical development of juvenile justice, the key theoretical approaches to explaining youth crime, the nature of youth crime, and the institutional responses to juvenile offending. Part 2: "Social dynamics of Juvenile Justice", has chapters on class and community, indigenous young people, gender and juvenile justice, and ethnic minority youth. Part 3: "The State, Punishment, and Community", has chapters on police, the courts and sentencing, detentioncentres and community corrections, youth crime prevention, and restorative justice. This comprehensive and well-crafted book is an indispensable text for students in criminology, criminal justice, sociology, criminal law, social work, and justice studies. It is also an important reference source for youth and community workers, justice department officials, members of the police, social scientitsts, social workers, and young people themselves.

Family Life and Youth Offending

The contention that young people commit offences due to inadequate parenting and parental difficulties has been an abiding feature of the debates on juvenile offending. Previously this evidence has been used to design prevention programmes for young offenders who have been processed by the criminal justice system, but this book examines how this evidence can be used to prevent offending in the first place. Examining the relationship between the causes of youth offending and the legal duty of the state to address those causes, this book provides evidence to show that improving the family environment could be the most effective and enduring strategy for combating juvenile delinquency and associated behavioural, social and emotional problems. It examines how current child welfare legislation, in particular the Children Act 1989, could be employed to prevent children who are at risk of engaging in antisocial and delinquent behaviour from offending. It abandons the traditional ‘welfare vs. justice’ dichotomy and instead outlines a new approach which focuses on the rights and needs of young people in troubled circumstances and their families.

Detailed and comprehensive, this volume presents authoritative discussions by leading scholars on issues surrounding serious and violent juvenile offenders.

Consumerist criminology

Leslie Wilkins, a criminologist respected on both sides of the Atlantic, argues for the need of adopting new techniques, borrowed from consumerism, to deal with crime analysis. Believing that the public, or consumer of criminal justice services, has fared poorly from the existing criminal justice system, he suggests that better _market research_ and management techniques will, if adopted, improve the understanding of both crime and sentencing.

Imagining crime

This book offers an original and challenging reading of the 'crimino-legal complex' - criminology, criminal justice, criminal law, the media and everyday experiences - in the light of cultural studies and feminist theory.Through an exploration of the crisis engendered by the failure of the crimino-legal complex to solve the problems of crime and criminality, Alison Young exposes the cultural dimension of its institutions and practices. She analyzes the far-reaching effects of the cultural value given to crime, showing it to be rooted in a powerful nexus of the body, language, the community and everyday life.Imagining Crime examines a number of key events and issues which have signalled shifts in the representation of crime. These include: criminology's resistance to feminist intervention; the pleasures of reading detective fiction; ambiguities of victimization and social justice in the city; sacrificial structures in the law's response to conjugal homicide; policing the ethnicity of the 'illegal' immigrant; defensive responses to the limits of representation in the Bulger affair; the governmental strategies of campaigns against single mothers; and the fatalism of the spectacle of HIV/AIDS in criminal justice policy.

Dieses Buch ist ein bedeutender Beitrag zur Standortbestimmung der täterorientierten Forschung in der Kriminologie. Die Beiträge befassen sich mit der Frage, wie Kriminalität als Erscheinung im Leben von Individuen auftritt, sich ausprägt und gegebenenfalls strukturiert, welche typischen Verlaufsgestalten sich formen, wie Rückfälligkeit sich entwickelt bis hin zu einer sog. kriminellen Karriere. Vorformen der Kriminalität (wie Frühdelinquenz) und Randbereiche (wie Alkohol-, Drogenkonsum, psychiatrisch relevante Auffälligkeiten) werden mit einbezogen. Die Beiträge erstrecken sich auch auf methodologische und methodische Grundsatzfragen des empirischen Zugangs zur Verbrechenswirklichkeit, der erfahrungswissenschaftlichen Erfassung des Täters in seinen sozialen Bezügen, der forensischen Begutachtung und der (therapeutischen) Behandlung.

This unprecedented study of delinquent behavior reversal challenges the widely held view that early delinquency becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. By identifying the variables involved in the turnaround process, the contributors provide an examination of issues such as: favorable effects of juvenile court adjudication; following up previously adjudicated delinquents; the post-intervention experience; delinquency and attachment; and evolution, devolution, and disruption of treatment in an antisocial child. The book is a significant and welcome addition to the literature that should stimulate more and better research on the juvenile justice system that will have a positive and constructive thrust. "Criminal Justice Review" Adolescent delinquents can often experience a complete behavioral turnaround--even if their delinquent behaviors have become a pattern. This unprecedented study of delinquent behavior reversal challenges the widely held view that early delinquency becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. By identifying the variables involved in the turnaround process, the contributors hope to provide an understanding of this phenomenon--and to encourage its occurrence. They examine, from both personal and research perspectives, issues such as: favorable effects of juvenile court adjudication; following up previously adjudicated delinquents; the post-intervention experience; delinquency and attachment; and evolution, devolution, and disruption of treatment in an antisocial child.
