Summary
With increased attention to racial violence in the United States and with the related rise of black activism, national attention is focusing on the high rate of incarceration among populations of color. Minority youth (black, Latino, and American Indian) make up about one-third of the US juvenile population, yet they comprise two-thirds of the juvenile corrections population. This book looks at the racial and socioeconomic factors that contribute to youth crime/detention and provides an overview of the workings of the juvenile justice system, detention, reform school, prison, alternatives to incarceration, re-entry and aftercare, and future trends. The book also presents the science behind the juvenile justice reforms: what works and why. Supplemented with profiles of teen offenders and creative writing by youth offenders, this book provides YA readers with an up-close and personal introduction to the American juvenile justice system
