Juvenile Justice in America: Problems and Prospects by Randall G. Shelden and Daniel Macallair

Despite declines in youth crime rates over the past twenty years, public perceptions of youth violence have contributed to widespread support for dismantling the juvenile court system and trying children as adults – replacing rehabilitation with incarceration as the solution to juvenile delinquency. Juvenile Justice in America: Problems and Prospects debunks the argument that incarceration reduces crime and advocates social policy that seeks workable alternatives. The articles in Part I look at critical areas within the juvenile justice system, such as aftercare and the double standard that exists for girls. Throughout each selection, the issues of class and racial bias are underscored, along with gender bias. Part II offers specific recommendations for reform, emphasizing the need to think outside the box in seeking alternatives to secure confinement.” — description from Ama​zon​.com
