The Victorian town child by Pamela Horn( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As nineteenth-century Britain became increasingly urbanized and industrialized, the number of children living in towns grew rapidly. At the same time, Horn considers the increasing divisions within urban society, not only between market towns and major manufacturing and trading centers, but within individual towns, as rich and poor became more segregated. During the Victorian period, public attitudes toward children and childhood shifted dramatically, often to the detriment of those at the lower end of the social scale--including paupers and juvenile delinquents. Drawing on original research, including anecdotes, first-hand accounts, and a wealth of photographs, The Victorian Town Child describes in detail the changing lives of all classes of Victorian town children, from those of prosperous business and professional families to working-class families, where unemployment and overcrowding were particular problems. Horn also examines the issues of juvenile labor and exploitation, how factory work and education were combined, how crime and punishment were dealt with among children, and the changes in health and infant death rates over the period."--Publisher description

Young offenders : juvenile delinquency from 1700 to 2000 by Pamela Horn( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Young Offenders examines the way in which attitudes - and the law itself - have evolved in dealing with juvenile wrongdoing from the early eighteenth century to the end of the twentieth. By the use of court and prison records, parliamentary papers, newspapers, the writings of reformers and other records, such as those covering transportation and life in the overseas penal colonies, it considers the way in which the punishment of the young and the definition of delinquency itself have developed. The gender difference between boys' misdeeds, often involving theft and violence, and girls' offences, which frequently relate to sexual and moral matters, is also considered. The book shows how attempts at reforming offenders by the creation of purpose-built institutions have met with disillusion and discouragement and have been followed by a reversion to harsher treatment. The reminisces of youngsters who have passed through the criminal justice system over the years add a personal dimension to the debate"--Book jacket
