Report on juvenile delinquency by H. D Willcock( )

1 edition published in 1949 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1948, this is one of the earliest books to be devoted to the phenomenon of aberrant behaviour among the young. The original blurb has a contemporary ring to it: 'At a time when the newspapers carry daily reports of violence and crime committed by young people, the publication of this book, containing as it does, a thorough examination of the whole problem of juvenile delinquency, is imperative to a full understanding of our time. Not only is the evidence of prison chaplains and psychiatrists sifted and collated, but also accounts of home and work conditions, and the reasons for drifting into crime, are given by the young people themselves. The merits and demerits of the present system of approved-school correction and prison are discussed at length, and a picture is built from which he general reader can assess the value of much of our present system of social reform
