"This collection of essays offers new perspectives on the nexus between race and juvenile justice in the United States. The involvement of youth of all races in crime and the problem of disproportionate minority confinement has spawned a considerable amount of research into the effects of race in the juvenile justice system. Penn, Taylor Greene, and Gabbidon add to the race and juvenile justice literature by bringing together in one volume important essays that link research, theory, and practice." Written by leading criminologists, the essays capture the unique aspects of African American, Asian American, Latino American, Native American, and White American involvement in delinquency and the juvenile justice system. The articles also address timely issues such as domestic violence, gangs, the death penalty, the politics of race and juvenile justice, and prevention strategies. While the volume is suitable for a variety of criminology, criminal justice, and sociology courses, it is also a resource for justice professionals and youth advocates.
