Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Jennifer Fakolt
With this work, in the Issues and Debate series, authors Nunez and Marx offer a solid and timely addition to the growing body of works concerning the legal rights of young people. The question that informs all aspects of youth rights, and provides the foundation for the book itself, is whose rights reign supreme when determining the child's best interest: those of the state, the parent, or the child? Nunez and Marx provide a broad overview of the many complexities that ensue when attempting to decide the extent of young people's rights. The book is neatly organized into topical chapters, which in turn are helpfully subdivided. The issues covered range widely, from young peoples' rights for protection; First Amendment controversies raging over Internet access and dress codes; privacy concerns, such as related to birth control and search-and-seizure rulings; discrimination on many fronts; and criminal issues-what happens when children commit adult crimes. Included in each section are historic precedents for current laws, landmark cases, and contemporary high-profile cases, such as those of Shannon Faulkner's suit to gain admittance to the Citadel and Michael Fay's Singapore caning. Nunez and Marx conclude with the hope that while there are still many restrictions on young peoples' rights, an ideal future will equate "children's rights" with "children's needs." Nunez and Marx raise questions, articulate concerns, and offer direction, but they do not provide answers. Rather, they give voice to current legal issues and stimulate thought and discussion. Because the scope of the book is so broad, entries for topics are necessarily brief-typically limited to one or two pages. Each section nevertheless offers a balanced viewpoint of the matter under examination. Nunez and Marx demonstrate impressive research: topics are well documented and the selections for further reading are valuable. Although the tone of the book is more scholarly than Landau's Your Legal Rights (Walker, 1995), it is no less readable, and the work as a whole stands firmly on its own. This will prove a useful research tool. Index. Photos. Source Notes. Further Reading.

Gr 7 UpA well-written and thoroughly researched account of the constitutional rights of young people in America. Issues such as free speech; privacy; adoption and custody rights; curfew laws; age, sex, and handicap discrimination; child labor; abuse; and crime and punishment are fully covered. Each chapter begins with specific case studies or events that caused the high courts to study and, in some cases, change laws regarding the legal rights of minors in our society. The discussion ranges from historical issues such as child labor to more recent issues relating to AIDS discrimination. Included are common concerns facing school officials: dress code, yearbook and newspaper censorship, students' right to assemble, locker and automobile searches, school prayer, and book censorship. The authors explain each case and resulting law in language that young adults can clearly understand. Black-and-white photographs of trail blazers for children's rights, such as Ryan White and Gregory Kingsley, are included along with their case studies. The final chapter takes a "Glimpse into the Future." The Bill of Rights and later amendments to the Constitution affecting children are appended. There are several books available that deal with specific court cases regarding students' rights such as Leah Farish's Tinker v. Des Moines (Enslow, 1997); however, And Justice for All is more comprehensive in scope, making it a perfect resource for social studies and government classes. It is one of those rare nonfiction jewels that readers may use for reference, but will want to read cover-to-cover.Pat Scales, Greenville Middle School, SC

    And Justice For All

    'And Justice For All' was written by Sandra Nunez and Trish Marx. I think that the moral of this book would be ' IT is not a bad thing to tell someone if you are getting sexually abused or hurt.' This book tells stories that have probably never been heard before, and they are told with great voice and feeling It also tells how young people never got the justice that they deserved when they were alive. It made me realize how special my life is, and how I have family, friends, and teachers who care about me. This book is a good book for those spoiled and insensitive children out there in the world, because it will reach them and make them realize that they should not take life for granted. I believe that this book took a long time to write because it was written withe great thought and intelligence!! I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others!!!
