Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This four-color text provides students with a solid overview of the juvenile justice system in the United States. It presents the historical background of the US Juvenile Justice system, its current status, as well as contemporary societal and legal debates. An examination of various policies, programs, and practices is provided throughout the text. The text includes coverage of juvenile law and procedure, juvenile corrections, juvenile delinquency, delinquency prevention, and the future of juvenile justice in the United States.

Book News Annotation:

This text for introductory courses covers the juvenile justice system in the US, emphasizing practical application. Taylor et al. (criminal justice, U. of North Texas-Denton) outline its history, theories, the role of the police and courts, the corrections system, and key issues. This edition includes more on juvenile crime rates and other measures, strain theory and life-course theories, a discussion of the Roper v. Simmons case on the juvenile death penalty, and more on balanced and restorative justice. Revisions were made to the chapter on delinquency prevention and intervention and the discussion of drug offenders. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
