'The lessons in this book remind us that we can--and that wemust--do better, for the sake of our children, their futures, and the sake of our nation. . . . This volume is a call to action, and I encourage everyone who reads it to take steps to ensure thatall America's children are given an equal chance to succeed. Wemust all work together to replace the cradle-to-prison pipelinewith a pipeline to responsible, productive adulthood.' --Fromthe Foreword by Marian Wright Edelman, JD, President and founder, Children's Defense Fund, Washington, DC

'Juvenile Justice: Advancing Research, Policy, and Practiceappears at a critical time, when promising juvenile justice reformsare underway in so many jurisdictions across the United States.Sherman and Jacobs, and their impressive array of expert authors, fill a significant gap in the literature, making the current bodyof juvenile justice research and experience accessible to policymakers, researchers, and funders, and doing so through a practicaland positive lens.' --Patrick Mc Carthy, President and Chief Executive Officer, Annie E. 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 National Council on Crime and Delinquency, Oakland, CA
