Carol Hayden reviews evidence about children in trouble across a range of circumstances, demonstrating the tensions between welfare and justice, care and control in the treatment of these vulnerable young people and evaluating the implications of the current 'what works' debate within social policy. This book will be invaluable to all students and professionals working with children in social work, teaching or the criminal justice system.

CAROL HAYDEN is currently Reader in Applied Social Research at the University of Portsmouth Institute for Criminal Justice Studies, UK. She has published widely on children and young people 'at risk' or 'in trouble'.

(b) A grounded and coherent theoretical approach.
(c) A wide-ranging approach.
(d) A clear and appropriate style.
