Books Info:

Better Than Boot Camp Youth Yesterday and Today free pdf Better than Boot camp had its origins in community youth work that the author undertook in Dunedin, New Zealand during the mid 1970s. It was talk among New Zealand politicians about having boot camps for lawless young people that prompted him to put this book together about youth yesterday and today. He makes the point that money expended on the kind of work undertaken in Dunedin in the 70s and 80s is more meaningful for the future than boot camps or bigger prisons.
