This much-needed casebook provides a thorough historical overview as well as a thoughtful selection of appellate cases followed by editorial comments and questions. The police section focuses on cases dealing with the Fourth and Fifth Amendments rights of juveniles, and the processing of offenders. The section on juvenile courts deals with the actual processing of delinquents and status offenders. The last part explores the treatment of juveniles in correctional facilities, including unusual punishment, violation of the Fourteenth Amendment equal protection clause, death penalty and escape.
