Western systems of juvenile justice
This book will become the basic sourcebook for those concerned with comparative juvenile justice. Both authoritative and truly comparative, it describes the North American and eight major Western European systems of juvenile justice. Each chapter delineates the basic structural components of the system and addresses some major questions concerning its underlying legal assumptions. This work is essential to the development of empirical and theoretical advances in this field -- it will be of great value to juvenile justice professionals, criminologists, lawyers, other human service professionals and all students of comparative justice.
