Childhood and youth have often been the targets of moral panic, and this short book explores a series of these pressing concerns about young people: child abuse, child pornography, child sexual exploitation, child trafficking, and the concept of childhood generally. With an appraisal of the work of the influential thinker, Geoffrey Pearson, who wrote on deviance and young people, Childhood and Youth draws attention to the moralizing within these discourses and asks how we might do things differently.
