Casey Foundation, Baltimore, MD

In Juvenile Justice: Advancing Research, Policy,and Practice, Sherman and Jacobs have diligently collected essaysfrom the top experts in the juvenile justice field who tell anempirically based and powerful narrative of who is really in thedelinquency system. As this book makes clear, until we ask andanswer the right questions, we will remain unable to help the youthmost in need." --Alexander Busansky, President, The NationalCouncil on Crime and Delinquency, Oakland, CA
