|Title:||Young people and crime in rural communities||Contributor(s):||Barclay, Elaine (author); Hogg, Russell George (author); Scott, John (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2235||Abstract:||Because childhood and adolescence are crucial phases in psycho-social development and the formation of responsible citizens, an unusual degree of attention and supervision is directed at the young (Bittner, 1976; Rose, 1989). Such is the moral frailty of youth that mere presence or 11 doing nothing" (Corrigan, 1979) can, under certain circumstances, excite adult anxieties as a harbinger of immediate or later danger. Delinquency and adolescent antisocial behaviour are not, therefore, a matter of objective, positivistic measurement and control, but are bound up with larger patterns of intergenerational relationships. These relationships are also conditioned by social and spatial environments.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Crime in Rural Australia, p. 100-112||Publisher:||Federation Press||Place of Publication:||Annandale, N.S.W.
