Example text

Arnull and D. Fox Within this section, there is therefore a focus on some of the theories that we consider have been most influential on the systems and societies featured and/or on the editors of this book or the authors of the chapters. They include new criminology, law and order conservatism, labelling theory, restorative justice, feminist theory and Cultural criminology approaches. New Criminology New criminology has had a profound influence on criminological thinking since it was promulgated in 1973 by Taylor, Walton and Young, and it is a key underpinning construct for the way in which delinquency is critiqued within this book, although here the site of power is placed in a broad international and cultural context.

More organic developments such as the World Wide Web shape, influence and impact those norms and values, and bring into relief both the beliefs we share and those we contest. This sense of what we share and where we differ within our cultures is what we seek to explore through each of the chapters in this book. What does each country/society hold to be true about young people and how is this manifested in the way in which it approaches young people and, in particular, those considered delinquent?
