This handbook provides a cross-disciplinary perspective on youth behaviour and the justice system. Leading authorities from sociology, political science, criminology, psychology, law, social work, and communication analyze the connections between children and youth (in their various social situations) and the law, including the making and enforcement of legal and social policies, the role of children's rights, and the operation of the legal system.
