Incarceration of minors

Martin Gitlin, book editor.
Summary
"Approximately ten thousand children are imprisoned in adult correctional facilities in the United States on any given day. Children as young as thirteen have received life sentences in prisons far from their family and community, vulnerable to abuse and neglect. These are often the same conditions that led them there in the first place. What is the most effective method of dealing with youth offenders? Should they be tried as adults and incarcerated with adult prisoners? Is money better spent on education and rehabilitation? This resource tackles these difficult questions through diverse perspectives written by authorities on the subject."--Back cover.
