Abstract

This article explores understandings of and responses to anti‐social behaviour (ASB) among members of a local authority specialist ASB unit, and the perceptions and experiences of local citizens whose complaints had been dealt with by that unit. It suggests that ASB officers operate in a ‘space’ between the demands of policy makers and the needs of residents and communities. Whilst complainant satisfaction is a key indicator of performance, the way this is achieved is more varied than a simple reliance on enforcement.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to provide a review of the Management History literature in the Journal of Management History from 2010 to 2014.

Design/methodology/approach

This review utilized a thematic analysis approach.

Findings

The author found seven distinct themes in the literature in addition to four subthemes. The themes include management pioneers, crisis management, the dark side of management (including the subthemes of slavery, child labor, monetary factors and gender issues), ancient texts, regional differences, religion and historical impacts of key management concepts.

Practical implications

This review displays management history research themes, which enables a manager to efficiently view various lenses with which to analyze management issues.

Originality/value

By bringing together previously disparate streams of work to understand the themes of management history, this paper analyzes the direction of research, identifies gaps in the literature and begins to more effectively build a cumulative research tradition.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to explore the tension between government protestations that youth justice policy is evidence-led and what the evidence implies in the context of the age of criminal responsibility.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper takes the form of a conceptual analysis of government policy and the evidence base.

Findings

The paper concludes that the current low age of criminal responsibility in England and Wales can be understood as a manifestation of the influence of underclass theory on successive governments.

Research limitations/implications

The paper is not based on primary research.

Practical implications

The arguments adduced help to explain the reluctance of government to countenance any increase in the age of criminal responsibility.

Social implications

The analysis might help inform approaches adopted by youth justice policy makers, practitioners and academics with an interest in seeking a rise in the age of criminal responsibility.

Originality/value

The paper offers an original analysis of government intransigence on an important social issue.
