Juvenile Justice: An Introduction provides a student-friendly exploration of all aspects of the juvenile system. It focuses on the juvenile justice system in United States, presenting materials about the existing key issues with juveniles, such as sex, bullying, social media and the issues of non-delinquent youths.

The book is divided into 14 chapters and covers the following concepts of the juvenile justice system:

o The definition and extent of delinquency
o The history of juvenile justice
o Psychological and biological approaches to explaining and learning the key issues of delinquency
o Sociological basis of delinquency
o Drugs
o Policy development and juveniles
o Court process
o Due process
o Institutional and residential interventions
o Probation and corrections
o Restorative justice
o Victimization
o Future trends in juvenile justice

The text is an excellent reference and "bedside" book for students and professionals in the criminal justice field, law enforcement, and policy development.

  • Important terms, "what you need to know," online links, tables and figures, photos, and discussion questions supplement every chapter.
  • Glossary consolidates key terms with definitions.
