Unique in approach, JUVENILE JUSTICE IN AMERICA, 6/e gives students an intimate look at the fascinating and sometimes tragic world of the juvenile offender and the juvenile justice system. Its comprehensive approach progresses from the history of juvenile justice to the types of delinquency, to the causes of offending, to juvenile courts, corrections, probation and community-based programming. Fully revised, this edition includes a new chapter on juvenile aftercare and sections on youth development and treatment. Voices in the system are heard via a unique collection of first-person accounts that capture the personal, psychological and thinking processes that characterize juvenile misbehavior.
