This book is unique. Dollinger draws on as different data as political debates, professional voices and the perspective of young offenders to show how crime can be narrated in many different ways. Studying this from 1970 and to date the main insight is still that narration is limited to some major coalitions and dominating stories, thus revealing both the creative potential and limitations of public storytelling. Changing Narratives of Youth Crime is an unusual and successful combination of theoretical insights and solid empirical analysis. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in exploring the potential of narrative studies in criminology, or who are interested in contemporary and historical representations of crime in Europe. Sveinung Sandberg, Professor of Criminology, University of Oslo, Norway Dollinger's book Changing Narratives of Youth Crime: From Social Causes to Threats to the Social adds to a growing body of narrative criminology. Dollinger analyses individual, professional, and political narratives of youth crime in Germany over a period of more than 40 years to explore understanding of youth crime is narrated. It draws on parliamentary debates, academic articles on youth crime in Social Work and Police studies, and interviews with young people who offend and observations of their trials. The book adds to our understanding of how youth crime is discussed in a number of domains and what this might mean for youth justice police and the treatment of young people who offend. Additionally, it offers a real test of the value of narrative analyses and their role policy development. This is a fascinating account of changing and diverse narratives of youth crime which should have great appeal to anyone with an interested in narrative and cultural theory, criminal justice and penal policy, and youth crime. Martina Feilzer, Professor in Criminology and Criminal Justice, Bangor University, United Kingdom


Author Information

Bernd Dollinger is a professor of pedagogy and social work at the University of Siegen, Germany. Youth crime is his long-standing focus of research. Bernd's special research interests relate to drug use, criminal policy, professionalism in dealing with juvenile delinquency and processes of identity negotiation of youths. He has published extensively on juvenile delinquency. His publications include handbooks, textbooks and numerous research papers. Most recently, he has been particularly interested in reconstructing measures against crime 'from below', as it were, from the often neglected perspective of the defendants and convicts. They in particular have a lot to tell, and their stories are individually linked to cultural crime discourses.
