This book will expand students’ knowledge and understanding of the evolution of juvenile justice in the last 50 years. Designed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the landmark case In re Gault, which the U.S. Supreme Court decided in 1967, the authors provide a brief history of juvenile justice, then frame the developments and transformations that have occurred in the intervening years. Topics covered include an overview of the dramatic changes to the field following the spike in youth violence in the 1990s, the "superpredator" myth, zero-tolerance policies, and sanctions for juvenile offenders—particularly the 2005 abolition of the death penalty and subsequent decision on life without parole. The book also covers child and youth victimization and trauma, and recent prevention and treatment initiatives. Designed for upper-level undergraduates, this text reflects on the evolving U.S. juvenile justice system while anticipating future challenges and trends. Reaffirming Juvenile Justice illustrates how ideology, media, and politics shape policy and how it can evolve.

Professional development is an issue of interest to all criminal justice faculty, from the newest Assistant Professor to the most senior Full Professor. The annual Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences conference has a number of panels and workshops that deal with the wide variety of issues that criminal justice faculty deal with as they move though their career. These panels are well-attended, attesting to the interest that faculty have in this topic. Given the importance of staying apprised of changes in the discipline, from hiring expectations to tenure and promotion requirements, the fact that academic study of criminal justice has changed a great deal in the past decade, and that more is now expected of graduate students, pre-tenure faculty, and even senior faculty, this book is an attempt to address some of the most important topics that those engaged in the academic study of criminal justice are faced with as they move through their career. Each chapter is written by a well-regarded academic with experience in the area upon which they are writing. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Criminal Justice Education.

"The evolution and development of the American juvenile justice system are distilled into an engaging survey in this extensively revised edition. In clear, authoritative language, the text explores the social, legal, historical, and political ramifications of administering justice to American youth. The authors draw upon their extensive backgrounds in the field to provide a cogent framework for organizing their discussion - one that skillfully blends theory, research, and practical applications. Throughout the text, boxed features address international perspectives on contemporary juvenile justice issues, as well as discussions of the theoretical explanations of crime and delinquency." "The authors incorporate numerous data sources to provide a balanced presentation of juvenile justice statistics, their multiple interpretations, and the trends they indicate. Moreover, they include well-researched material that often is overlooked in other texts, including up-to-date discussions of parole/aftercare and nondelinquent children. A comprehensive chapter on juvenile gangs illustrates how theory informs research, and research in turn informs policy and practice. The latest prevention and intervention strategies and programs are covered in a chapter that explores these goals from both philosophical and practical perspectives."--BOOK JACKET.

GOOGLE VERGISST NIE! Weshalb es lebenswichtig ist zu vergessen Das digitale Zeitalter ist eines der perfekten Erinnerung: niemals zuvor haben wir so viele Informationen sammeln können wie heute. Immer größer und billiger werdende Speichermedien, neue Methoden zur Erschließung von Informationen und der Zugriff auf Daten aus aller Welt über das Netz machen dies möglich. Welche Folgen hat diese Entwicklung? Wird nur noch das als wahr gelten, was die Form digitaler Daten annimmt? Oder werden wir für das, was dauert, für Verträge und sprachliche Kunstwerke, beim Papier bleiben? Ist das Vergessen nicht ein exzellenter, evolutionär bewährter Mechanismus zur Gewichtung von Informationen? Beeinträchtigt das permanente Erinnern nicht unser Urteils- und Entscheidungsvermögen und damit unsere Entwicklungsfähigkeit? Sind aus ihrem Kontext gerissene Informationen nicht anfällig für Manipulationen? Mayer-Schönberger öffnet uns die Augen für die Gefahren der ewigen digitalen Erinnerung und zeigt die wichtige Rolle auf, die das Vergessen in unserer Geschichte gespielt hat. Er plädiert für eine genial einfache Lösung: Dateien aller Art mit einem Verfallsdatum auszustatten, damit das Gedächtnis der Menschheit nicht unter der Datenflut zusammenbricht.

Drug Treatment Courts

Der suchtkranke Täter und der lösungszentrierte Verfahrensansatz im angloamerikanischen Strafrecht

Edgar Güldü beleuchtet das Modell der Drug Treatment Courts und – gemeinsam mit der Co-Autorin Frau Meryem Güldü – die zugrunde liegende Rechtstheorie. Der Autor zeigt, dass es sich bei den als Drug Courts bezeichneten Gerichtsprogrammen um einen neuartigen Diversionsansatz gegenüber suchtkranken Straftätern in den USA und den Ländern des Common Laws handelt. Drogengerichte heben sich nach Auffassung des Autors gegenüber dem Therapievorrang in unserer Rechtsordnung durch die Einbindung der Strafverfahrensbeteiligten in den Behandlungs- und Resozialisierungsprozess ab. Damit stehen die Drogengerichtsprogramme für eine sogenannte Problem-Solving Justice, einen lösungszentrierten Verfahrensansatz, der bisher zu Unrecht kaum Beachtung erfahren hat.
