The informal one is an oral warning given by a police officer and does not count towards a criminal record and is not included in the crime statistics. 5 Nine per cent lived in families which had their car stolen and 7 per cent had their home burgled (MORI Youth Survey 2000). 19 20 Part 1 Young People, Criminality and Criminal Justice 21 22 Chapter 2 Children, young people and modernity The first part of this book traces the social construction1 of young people in the modern era in terms of the concepts of childhood and adolescence and examines the strategies that were introduced to educate, discipline and control this increasingly important section of the population – ultimately in the interests of a capitalist economy and its agents – and it then proceeds to trace the history of what was to become a specialist juvenile justice system designed to deal with those individuals who came to deviate from, and transgress against, the legal and social norms established by the child tutelage strategies of modern society.
Many of the concerns that were expressed by the early sponsors of youth work were reflections of the requirements of the economic system but the relationship between the latter and the nature of intervention is ambiguous (Jeffs and Smith 1988a). At one level, many of the efforts of the ‘improvers’ were directed at the containment and reformation of elements of the system, yet without doubt, these early workers and philanthropists were sincere in their belief that they were acting in the best interests of the young, that the values and institutions they saw threatened were there for the good of all rather than the benefit of the few.
Becker was writing about the mid-twentieth century USA but his account has resonance with the story of how philanthropic entrepreneurs came to define categories of children and youth as acceptable and non-acceptable and at the same time developed strategies to ensure their surveillance, control, discipline and tutelage with the intention of reconstructing the non-acceptable in the form of the acceptable. Yet, again this account is too simplistic. It is clear that not only did many of these philanthropists have little idea of the actual or potential consequences of their actions but they might well have become disturbed with the recognition of that final reality.
