About the Book

Written by a leading scholar of juvenile justice, this book examines the social and legal changes that have transformed the juvenile court in the last three decades from a nominally rehabilitative welfare agency into a scaled-down criminal court for young offenders. It explores the complex relationship between race and youth crime to explain both the Supreme Court decisions to provide delinquents with procedural justice and the more recent political impetus to get tough on young offenders. This provocative book will be necessary reading for criminal and juvenile justice scholars, sociologists, legislators, and juvenile justice personnel.

About the Author:
Barry Feld is Centennial Professor of Law at the University of Minnesota Law School. He is the author of five books and more than three dozen law review and criminology articles on juvenile justice administration with special emphases on serious offenders, procedural justice, and youth sentencing policy.
