The authors of the 20 chapters in Juvenile Crime and Justice address various hotly debated topics along three loosely connected themes: prevention, prosecution, and corrections. Each author presents arguments both in favor of and opposed to various treatments, programs, and punishments, examining issues such as youth curfews, juveniles in adult courts, legal representation for juveniles, juvenile boot camps, group homes, out of home placement, and more. The chapters included cover the leading arguments pertaining to key topics in this field and point out where more research needs to be done, which, at present, includes many of the most controversial issues in juvenile justice policy.
