Juvenile Justice: A Reference Handbook highlights continuing controversies and emerging solutions and provides a discussion of the programs, laws, and policies concerning our young people. Also featured are profiles of notable individuals, agencies, and policy-makers in juvenile justice and delinquency prevention.
While the focus is on the United States, comparisons to international programs and policies are here as well. A directory of national and international organizations dealing with children's rights and juvenile justice wraps up this highly readable and insightful reference. Students, and those who work with children and teens, will appreciate this broad overview of the causes of delinquency and the workings of the juvenile justice system. Also provided are cutting-edge research studies, up-to-the-minute statistics, and authoritative sources to further explore these topics.
Descrizione del libro:
How can the United States best respond to troubled kids? The juvenile justice system cycles between therapy and punishment. Today's boot camps, hailed as a new approach to preventing delinquency, are similar to military-styled intervention from the early 20th century. If these get tough programs fail, it's back to treatment programs again.
