Children, Crime, Policy and Practice: Neither Welfare nor Justice.
Goldson, Barry
Children & Society, v11 n2 p77-88 Jun 1997
Claims that Britain's policy and practice on delinquency rides roughshod over welfare needs of children and negates their claims to justice, and that representation of children as "really persistent nasty little juveniles" by officials has served to legitimize harsh excesses of government responses. Challenges such "legitimacy" and calls for fundamental change in policy and practice for children in trouble. (EV)
