Close to half of the worlds population is below the age of criminal jurisdiction in most countries. Many of these young people are living in poverty and under totalitarian regimes. Given their deprived and often abject circumstances, it is not surprising that many of them become involved in crime.In Youth, Crime, and Justice, Clayton A. Hartjen provides a broad overview of juvenile delinquency: how it manifests itself around the world and how societies respond to misconduct among their children. Taking a global, rather than country-specific approach, chapters focus on topics that range from juvenile laws and the correction of child offenders to the abuse, exploitation, and victimization of young people.

Hartjen includes specific examples from the United States, Australia, Spain, Switzerland, New Zealand, Japan, India, Egypt, and elsewhere as he sorts through the various definitions of delinquent and explores the differences in behavior that contribute to these classifications.

Most importantly, his in-depth and comparative look at judicial systems worldwide raises questions about how young offenders should be corrected and how much fault can be laid on misbehaving youths acting out against the very societies that produced them.This book: provides a global overview of youth crime, victimization, and juvenile justice- includes specific examples from the United States, Australia, Spain, Switzerland, New Zealand, Japan, India, Egypt, and elsewhere- and, is ideal for courses in delinquency and comparative criminal justice.
