"Editors Higgins (sociology, U. of South Carolina, Columbia) and Mackinem (sociology, Clafin U.) have collected essays on the development of specialized courts over the last two decades, with expert commentators examining the reasons for the movement, the rationale and approaches of these courts and the anticipated benefits and pitfalls of these alternatives. Case studies are used to illustrate how these courts have been created to deal with specific types of offenses such as drug abuse, DUIs, domestic violence and mental health, and how these venues differ from traditional courts and other conventional solutions. The flaws of each type of court system are also analyzed for the benefits of students and scholars in criminology and criminal justice." - Reference & Research Book News
"The book supports the idea that there is cause to hope for these courts, if they can survive the current economic climate. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers and undergraduate students." - Choice
