Summary "The topical and disturbing problem of the causes of social exclusion in young people is brought vividly to life in this book. Exploring the central issues of parenting styles, schooling, bullying, truancy and peer pressure, the book explores how environmental experiences play an important part in why some people turn to crime." "This revealing book shows how all the evidence leads in one direction but, as Professor Cullingford concludes, the pattern that emerges and looks inevitable is, in fact, preventable. Of vital importance to anyone working with young people, the book shows not just the cause and effect of social exclusion but suggests ways to break the vicious circle that perpetuates the problem."--Jacket
