Overview

From boot camps to truancy, the Encyclopedia of Juvenile Justice provides more than 200 up-to-date, concise, and readable entries in a single, authoritative volume. The editors, noted authors of several criminal justice books and editors of the award-winning Encyclopedia of Prisons, cover historical and contemporary theories, concepts, and real-world practices of juvenile justice in the United States.

The entries address a broad range of issues and topics, such as alcohol and drug abuse, arson, the death penalty for juveniles, computer and Internet crime, gun violence, gangs, missing children, school violence, teen pregnancy, and delinquency theories. In addition, topics cover society’s response to the problems of juvenile justice, punishments meted out to America’s juvenile offenders, juvenile rehabilitation programs, and well-known researchers and professionals in the field.

Editorial Reviews

American Reference Books Annual
"This attractively produced Encyclopedia, with many well-written and informative articles, will surely be a useful resource for any party seeking basic information on a range of topics related to juvenile delinquency and juvenile justice. It can be recommended for purchase by public libraries as well as college and university libraries and those serving a scholarly community with an interest in juvenile justice issues. "— David O. Friedrichs
Lawrence Looks at Books
"This new reference guide explores these historical trends and the nature of the juvenile justice process today. From Edwin Sutherland to Marvin Wolfgang, the research and writing of leading theorists in juvenile criminology is examined. . . . The entries emphasize the research foundations of juvenile justice theory and provide numerous suggestions for further research. Although aimed at an academic audience, this guide will also serve public libraries. "— John R.M. Lawrence, Reference Librarian
Choice Magazine

"The contributors consistently present complex material with a readable style relatively free of technical jargon. Accordingly, this outstanding reference work is highly recommended for school and public library collections, as well as academic libraries and criminal justice collections. "

Two experts in the field of criminology team with 140 knowledgeable authorities to create a thorough and current reference that focuses on all aspects of juvenile delinquency. The major topics covered include delinquent behavior and theories relating to the behavior, historical information, treating delinquents, juvenile law, and public policy. More than two hundred concise articles explore many aspects of each topic. For example, the article that discusses arson includes subheadings of causes, curiosity and accidents, psychological problems, social problems, and profile of the juvenile fire setter. Entries are cross-referenced and offer detailed bibliographies of both print and electronic resources. Appropriate photographs and tables are interspersed throughout, including a photo of hip-hop graffiti to illustrate "tagging" of gang-oriented areas. Readers are provided with a generic list of entries and a subject-oriented list. The subject "delinquent behavior" covers eighteen topics, such as drugs, gangs, guns, and prostitution. Two especially helpful appendixes refer readers to additional information including books, reference sources, standards, statistics, databases, and Web sites categorized by topic. Easy to read, insightful, and jargon-free, this reference work is appropriate for both the lay public, especially high school students and librarians who serve them, and practitioners in the fields of law, youth services, medicine, and social services. Small libraries with limited budgets should consider purchasing this book for the quite specific information about juvenile delinquency, but it is also appropriate for law libraries and larger libraries that do not have a one-stop resourceon the topic.

Library Journal
One measure of a good reference book is how long its material will be pertinent for the researcher. Editors McShane (Univ. of Houston) and Williams (California State Univ.), coauthors of Encyclopedia of American Prisons, here extend the life of this work by providing a historical as well as a current perspective and avoiding high-profile topics such as Columbine in favor of more general entries like "School Violence." While no reference work will last forever, this encyclopedia would appear to be a good starting point for information on trends in juvenile justice from Colonial days to the present. A long entry traces the theories of delinquency that have evolved over the past 300 years, while others consider known cycles of violence and police response to delinquency today. Each entry is signed by an authority in the field and followed by a bibliography. The bibliographies cite only book titles, but an appendix does list Internet sites. The contents can be accessed through a general alphabetical subject listing or by an index. A drawback is variation in entry style; some appear to be geared toward a younger readership, while others address a more academically advanced audience. As a one-volume source, this work is especially appropriate for high school or college libraries; it would also be an asset in public libraries where a need exists.-Frances Sandiford, formerly with Green Haven Correctional Facility Lib., Stormville, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up-Alphabetically arranged, signed entries cover a range of subjects from legal and mental-health concerns to intervention and prevention programs to theories about juvenile delinquency. The objective, accessible articles offer introductory overviews and in-depth discussions; topics such as at-risk youth, juvenile gangs, and parental responsibility laws are covered in detail while entries on noted psychologists and sociologists such as Augusta Fox Bronner and Walter C. Reckless are shorter. Documented survey results and/or statistics are often found in the lengthier articles. Each entry includes see-also references and a detailed bibliography. An alphabetical list of entries, a "Reader's Guide" that organizes articles under broad categories, and an index provide easy access. The volume also includes some average-quality, captioned, black-and-white photographs. A useful resource.-Janet Woodward, Garfield High School, Seattle, WA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
