Like no other text on the market, JUVENILE JUSTICE: SYSTEM, PROCESS, AND LAW provides a balanced engaging and detailed look at real juvenile justice-the system, the process, and the law. Written by two authorities on the subject, del Carmen and Trulson's new text is organized by the logical and chronological sequencing of the process, making it easier for students to understand and remember, and helping them differentiate the juvenile justice system from the adult criminal justice system. Based on the authors' many years of hands-on, practical experience in the field, the text includes a wealth of interesting narrative illustrations that provide students with a realistic picture of the juvenile justice system. JUVENILE JUSTICE clearly and effectively introduces students to the various phases and complex nuances of juvenile law as they relate to the juvenile justice system, process, policy, and theory.

In Juvenile Justice: The System, Process, and Law, Rolando V. del Carmen, the Distinguished Professor of Criminal Justice at Sam Houston State University, and Chad R. Trulson, an Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of North Texas, have produced an excellent undergraduate text on the juvenile justice system. The book provides an easily understood and comprehensive view of the juvenile justice system and, in doing so, the authors have made a significant contribution to criminal justice scholarship. Educators seeking a text on the juvenile justice system need not look beyond Juvenile Justice: The System, Process, and Law.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
