About the Author:

Dr. James C. (Buddy) Howell is a Senior Research Associate with the National Gang Center, in Tallahassee, Florida, where he has worked for over twenty years. He formerly worked at the U.S. Department of Justice for 23 years, mostly as director of research and program development in the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. He has published over 50 works on youth and street gangs, and a similar number on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention, and seven books on both topics. His gang publication topics include street gang history; gang homicides; drug trafficking; gangs in schools; hybrid gangs; myths about gangs; risk factors; gang problem trends; gang history in the United States; and what works in preventing gang activity, combating gangs, and reducing gang crime. He is very active in helping states and localities reform their juvenile justice systems and use evidence-based programs, and in working with these entities to address youth gang problems in a balanced approach.

 

Review:

"This accessible handbook from a passionate advocate of giving youth ′room to reform, to keep their life chances intact′ will be valued by students and practitioners of juvenile justice, as well as lawmakers, policymakers, and social services research and development specialists."
Youth Today: The Newspaper on Youth Work (Cathi Dunn MacRae Youth Today: The Newspaper on Youth Work 2009-06-01)
