Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like no other text on the market, JUVENILE JUSTICE: SYSTEM, PROCESS, AND LAW provides a balanced engaging and detailed look at real juvenile justice-the system, the process, and the law. Written by two authorities on the subject, del Carmen and Trulson's new text is organized by the logical and chronological sequencing of the process, making it easier for students to understand and remember, and helping them differentiate the juvenile justice system from the adult criminal justice system. Based on the authors' many years of hands-on, practical experience in the field, the text includes a wealth of interesting narrative illustrations that provide students with a realistic picture of the juvenile justice system. JUVENILE JUSTICE clearly and effectively introduces students to the various phases and complex nuances of juvenile law as they relate to the juvenile justice system, process, policy, and theory.

Book News Annotation:

Addressing state to state differences, this textbook outlines the juvenile justice system in the United States and walks through the five stages in the juvenile justice process: initial contact, intake, adjudication, disposition, and aftercare. Summaries of the major juvenile cases decided by the Supreme Court and an analysis of the death penalty for juveniles are provided.
