Overview

Of the 21 chapters presented here, Roberts (criminal justice, Rutgers) wrote 10 and rounded up contributions from other juvenile justice specialists who could complement his own areas of expertise. The field is complex, and the audience is broad, including legislators, administrators, and federal & state funding officers involved with the care, treatment, and rehabilitation of juvenile offenders. Coverage includes history, trends, policies and practices, current research on model programs, case studies, and information about the functions and legal responsibilities of various agencies and institutions. An epilogue reports on the National Survey of Juvenile Offender Treatment Programs That Work, and a glossary covers terms, programs, and psychiatric diagnoses. Roberts wrote a previous book, Juvenile Justice: Policies, Programs, and Services, which was originally published in 1989; Library of Congress cataloging seems to erroneously identify this Sourcebook as a third edition based on the earlier book.
