The substantial and wide-ranging material in this composite study of the functioning of Singapore's juvenile delinquency remedial services offers information and insights which will be of wide interest. Magistrates, lawyers, volunteers, social workers, teachers, panel advisers and not least many juveniles themselves, offer their persectives on an area of life of importance to everyone in Singapore. Part I examines the principles, procedures and programmes of the Juvenile Court and its personnel. Part 2 explores the many and varied Community initiatives which are addressing prevention and rehabilitation, and includes insightful personal stories by workers and juveniles. Part 3 goes international and includes discussion of Restorative Justice concepts and perspectives from New Zealand and the US. Indexed with address list and bibliography.
