Key areas of policy development concerning youth, drugs and the criminal justice system are also examined. Each chapter is complete in itself, providing description and analysis of current policy, an overview of its historical development and discussion of current and future issues in the field. A table of the main policy developments and a list of further reading are given at the end of each chapter.
