SUMMARY

This third edition of Juvenile Justice in America takes us directly into the new millennium with the incorporation of the most recent studies and statistical data available at the time of publication. The book is now organized to allow the student to move quickly and decisively into the action of the police, courts, and corrections. Major issues and findings from all of these subsystems of the justice system are discussed as well as new materials on gangs, drugs, guns, and schools. Where we are today is described and the issues of whether the juvenile system should be reformed or abolished, whether "hard" or "soft" policies should prevail, and whether the rights of juveniles should be extended are subjects of much attention. Consideration is given to what works and what does not. Materials on the profile of juveniles in trouble and the social context from which juveniles come are emphasized, as are the treatments and programs available to them in the community and institutions. A major new feature of this third edition is a chapter on International Juvenile Justice, based on the 1985 Bejing Rules. It illustrates just how far some countries have come and, even more aptly, how far almost all countries have to go in achieving justice for juveniles. Other notable features: the historical development of issues in juvenile justice police discovery and investigation of child sexual abusejuvenile court procedures, issues, and waiver to adult court the pitfalls of juvenile institutionalization the field's strongest chapter on research and theory websites of interest for each chapter a vision for the year 2000 and beyondBartollas, Clemens is the author of 'Juvenile Justice in America', published 2000 under ISBN 9780130144232 and ISBN 0130144231.
