Youth, Crime, and Justice is a comprehensive introduction to juvenile justice through a unique case-study approach. Each chapter opens with an engaging case, followed by an explanatory chapter that teaches core concepts, key terms, and critical issues. This accessible textbook covers the historical evolution of the core institutions charged with the socialization, guidance, and regulation of children and youth in the modern era, including the family, schools, communities, child welfare, and the juvenile justice system. Adopting a life course perspective, the book examines the changing legal, social, and political landscape of childhood and adolescence in America. The authors take an intersectional focus, examining the dynamics of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, power, and privilege. The book discusses the juvenile justice system, including police, courts, corrections, and recent community innovations, in relation to the latest research on positive youth development and best practices. A complimentary Instructor's Manual and Test Bank are available, as well as an open-access Companion Website for students that includes interactive flashcards and other learning material.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book focuses on essential topics in the contemporary study of juvenile delinquency and juvenile justice, presenting them in an accessible and informative way. The case studies provide an especially useful starting point for getting students interested in the important subject matter covered in the text. -- Christopher J. Sullivan, University of Cincinnati
This book is unique and valuable in that before introducing the chapter material on causes and consequences of juvenile justice system involvement, it introduces students to real-life cases of youths who have faced this experience. Giving students this human context allows them to gain a deeper understanding of what it is really like for youth in trouble. This is an excellent, brief, and easy-to-read textbook for those who prefer to prompt critical thinking and discussion in class. -- Jodi Lane, University of Florida
