Synopsis

Youth in Prison by Roger Smith

The subject of juvenile detention is a major issue for Canadian and U.S. societies, and especially for teens. This book looks at juvenile detention: beginning with the environments that often produce troubled teens, to the legal process of the juvenile courts, to the varieties of detention arrangements and daily life in a juvenile detention facility. The book does not shy away from hard questions: are teen delinquents criminals, victims, or both? Should society punish or rehabilitate? The book offers multiple perspectives on difficult issues, considering both statistics and life stories. Youth in Prison is valuable reading for all concerned with juvenile crime, detention, and the future of troubled young people's lives.
