About the Author:

Sheila Brown is Lecturer in Criminology at the Faculty of Law, University of Sheffield and has lectured in sociology and criminology since 1989. Formerly known for her challenging work in the field of youth and crime, over the past few years she has been researching the ways in which crime and law are embedded in everyday life through media cultures. Travels through the USA, cyberspace, TV, cinemas and crime fiction have been used as research journeys to explore the boundaries between fact and fiction in crime and the law. She is currently researching in the areas of science and crime, and mobile phone cultures.

Review:

"...much more than an introductory textbook...highly recommended reading." - Journal of Social Policy "This is an excellent introductory textbook on youth and crime. It is excellent not only in its analysis of criminological questions about youthful offending, but also because it positions the debate within a wider context of the relationship between young people and society - addressing the social construction of childhood and youth, moral panics about deviant youth, issues concerning social exclusion, and the important matter of gender and 'masculinities'." - Young People Now
