For courses in Juvenile Justice and Juvenile Delinquency.

A market-leader, The Juvenile Justice System, 7e, follows a true-to-life focus, capturing the essence of what it means to be part of the juvenile justice system through personality highlights, career snapshots, and personal accounts. The text provides a thorough examination of the juvenile justice system through easy-to-understand descriptions and discussions of policy, practice, and procedure in juvenile justice. It covers the entire process from arrest, intake, and adjudicatory hearings, to dispositions, and aftercare. This includes up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of historical, applied, theoretical, and legal information about the juvenile justice system and juvenile delinquency.
