Product Description


We lock up more young people than any other country in Europe but do we know what happens when they are put into custody? What is the impact on them of a prison regime? Can it be a constructive, rehabilitative experience or does the culture of prison make this possible? Is being removed from home and community inevitably destructive of can it give some youngsters a chance to sort out chaotic lives? Can prison be the place to address the severe problems of physical and sexual abuse, violence, disadvantage, failure, and self-loathing that so many who end up inside suffer? Or is locking them up the ultimate failure of a society that cannot find a better way to deal with its problem young? Angela Neustatter visits young offenders, governors, staff, HM Chief Inspector of Prisons, the Probation Service,Youth Offending Teams, voluntary agencies and campaigning organisations to find some answers to these important questions, and puts forward recommendations for improving the way society deals with children who break the law.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compulsive Reading 1 Dec 2002
By Sean
"Locked In Locked Out" is a clearly and concisely written book, presented in an easy readable, logical format. It provides an excellent insight into Young Offenders and Young Offenders Institutions. The book does not go into indepth detail and remains somewhat brief, which is actually welcoming and refreshing for those wishing to rapidly acquire knowledge about the subject matter. It is evident from the style of writing that the author writes passionately about the subject in hand. Compulsive reading for those working with, or considering working with, Young Offenders, and excellent value for money.

Locked In Locked Out is a brief but informative, introductory glance to life inside Young Offenders Institutes throughout the UK. The author clearly spent a lot of time visiting the YOI and speaking to many inmates to get a grasp of their experiences and opinions.
In some ways, Locked In Locked Out comes across (perhaps slightly unfairly) as simply being a research document. However, if you look further than all the statistics and inmates quotes, then you stumble across some interesting conclusions - effective alternatives to custodial sentences for young offenders; improvements that could be implemented in YOI; and the advantages and disadvantages of YOI.
Locked In Locked Out would be certainly be an enjoyable read for all youth justice teams, and anyone else with an interest in youth justice issues.
