Jeffrey A. Butts and Daniel P. Mears (2007). Reviving Juvenile Justice in a Get-Tough Era. In Serious Delinquency-An Anthology, Chapter 20, Thomas Bernard (Editor). New York, NY: Oxford University Press.
Edited by Thomas Bernard, Serious Delinquency features a survey approach to the major issues in delinquency and the juvenile justice system. Coverage is both broad and deep, yet presented accessibly. Topics include patterns of offending and victimization, predictors, theoretically driven correlates, and a wide range of issues in the operations of the juvenile justice system.
