Using a comparative and historical analysis of the relevant law and practice in England and Germany, this incisive volume examines the issue of whether there is still a need in modern society for an individual assessment of the criminal responsibility of children and young persons. The author offers an in-depth discussion of the criminal responsibility of the young and compares historical developments in England and Germany. In addition to this comparative analysis, the author also provides suggestions for reform.
