Synopsis

Minorities in Juvenile Justice by Kimberley Kempf Leonard

Providing current information on the disparate treatment of minority youth within the juvenile justice system, this volume begins by identifying the need for a better understanding of how minority youths experience this system. The book then draws on research programmes that reflect different techniques of investigation, sampling and analysis with several racial minority groups. Topics include: juvenile encounters with police; the role of community structure in shaping the perceptions of juvenile crime and the response to it; and the treatment of Native American youths in juvenile justice. In conclusion the book outlines strategies for research and observation of over-representation of minorities as well as steps to help overcome racial bias in juvenile justice processing.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
