John A Winterdyk has updated this comprehensive reader that examines juvenile justice systems around the world.
The second edition includes eighteen authors and six juvenile justice models.
Review questions are provided for each chapter, thus enabling comparative analysis of the different models.
In addition, each chapter is accompanied by key terms and helpful web links to enable the reader to explore new issues in the respective countries.
Each contribution has been written in a socially and politically neutral manner so as not to draw unnecessary comparisons to any one juvenile justice model or country.
This book will appeal to a wide international audience and to anyone interested in critically examining and studying juvenile justice in a comparative context.
The text will be of interest to criminologists and criminal justice policy-makers, as well as to academics and students in the social sciences.
