"The chief virtues of Juvenile Justice are its readability, comprehensive coverage, strong organization, and design and layout. Graphically, it is superb...It covers topics such as gangs and substance abuse in an engaging, even entertaining way, making it an enjoyable read for students. The way it blends these topics with system components (policing, courts, corrections) is refreshing." - Tim Matthews, Eastern Kentucky University "I think this book is great. It provides a nice historical and theoretical perspective of the field, which I think is important in any class, but it also walks the reader through the juvenile court process. I also like it because it tackles tough issues like gangs and drugs." - Philip J. Verrecchia, York College of Pennsylvania
