Title
Normal Bad Boys: Public Policies, Institutions, and the Politics of Client Recruitment
Abstract
A study of the history, impact and subversion of public policies affecting the disposition of delinquent neglected and emotionally disturbed Anglophone youths in Montreal. The authors examine these policies through the study of the more than eighty-year history of The Boys’ Farm, later known as the Shawbridge Youth Centre, and the strategies it used to control admissions in the face of changing relations with other organizations in Montreal’s delinquency, child welfare and mental health networks. The study concludes with a contemporary case study of Montreal’s Anglophone youth protection network in the wake of the implementation in 1979 of the Quebec Youth Protection Act.
