Moral Markets for Troubling Youths: A Disruption!
Cousins, Linwood H.
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v8 n2 p193-211 May 2001
Maintains that public policy discourse with narrow views of morality and character are at the center of contemporary definitions and marketing of services for violent/troubled youth. Uses descriptive and ethnographic data on violence in urban and black schools/communities to argue that, left undisturbed, moral entrepreneurs pose as much risk as the youths who are causing so much trouble.
