CHOICE Review

The juvenile justice system and discussions of reform remain pressing contemporary issues; Dowd (Univ. of Florida, College of Law) has edited a thought-provoking book on how to change, modify, or even overhaul the juvenile justice system in the US. She covers ways academics, activists, and researchers are trying to work within the existing system as well as propose changes. Parts 1 and 2 provide history and context and offer international and legal explanations of the issues. These chapters are especially helpful--seasoned academics and interested scholars can gain awareness of some things that have been done in the name of juvenile justice reform. Parts 3, 4, and 5 provide some much needed detail regarding how marketing, adults versus juveniles, and critical actors all play roles in developing effective ways to allow juveniles through the system. These chapters help readers better understand prosecutorial discretion and how race also plays a role in the system. The book closes by providing support systems for those involved in the juvenile justice system and those looking to implement reform. These final chapters note that reform rests on the actors who are currently part of the process. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. --Aaron RS Lorenz, Ramapo College
