not yet rated|write a review
The bulk of research and writing in criminology remains highly, if not intentionally, ethnocentric and culturally bound. The field does exhibit a growing awareness of the potential insights we might gain from research in political and judicial systems outside the boundaries of our own. This bibliography assembles literature on delinquency and the operation of juvenile judicial and correctional agencies around the world. The international focus of this volume sets it apart from others. Hartjen and Priyadarsini provide a comprehensive view of the research on youth criminology and juvenile justice. The publications included cover a quarter-century (from 1975 through 2001) of criminological research and writing. Within each broad topic category is a reference list organized by individual country to make locating relevant literature for specific localities easy. Since many references involved research or comment on two or more localities, a "Multinational" section is included at the end of each topic grouping. Each reference is listed alphabetically by author name and accompanied by a brief annotation. Author and subject indexes help the user find all referenced publications included. This bibliography will prove to be highly useful for any individual or institution looking for references on international youth crime and justice.
