Description - Securing Our Children's Future by Gary S. Katzmann
A nation of great resources, the US is confronted all too often with the unsettling reality that homicide rates for juveniles far exceed those of other industrialized nations. The challenge of reducing youth violence has prompted a flurry of commentary, legislative activity and scholarly studies. Focusing on the role of institutions in combating youth violence, this volume seeks to reflect the problem's complex and multi-dimensional character. It brings together a wide range of skilled professionals and acedemics across disciplines to focus on the co-ordination and implementation of youth anti-violence strategies. The essays constitute a framework to guide key players in the juvenile justice system: prosecutors, the defence bar, the courts, correction and probation departments, faith-based institutions, schools, the media, non-profit institutions and the private sector.
