Juvenile Justice in America takes an in-depth look at the lives of juveniles and their experiences in society, from multiple viewpoints. Balancing theory, evidence and practice, Bartollas and Miller examine the policies and problems of American juvenile justice. They offer the fullest coverage in the field of the history, data, legal issues, evidence-based programs and best practices of juvenile justice today.

The 8th Edition further emphasizes delinquency prevention, with nearly all chapters including a section on it. The new edition also has a new chapter on juvenile offender populations, plus boxed features highlighting the realities of working in the juvenile justice system. The Voices in the American Juvenile Justice System supplement presents firsthand stories from juvenile offenders, victims and justice professionals.
