"Barry Feld (University of Minnesota) and Donna Bishop (Northeastern University) open this nearly 1,000-page resource volume noting that, in a rational world, what we know about juvenile crime and what we are doing in terms of juvenile justice policy and practice would, one way or another, be aligned with each other... In between these chapters, Feld and Bishop have gathered a stellar cast of academics and researchers... In the end, Feld and Bishop share some optimism about a retreat from repressive policies and practices of the past... The Oxford Handbook of Juvenile Crime and Juvenile Justice is clearly a valuable resource that should enhance such a retreat." --Journal of Community Corrections
"...A work that provides both technical facility for those already initiated and an unintimidating overview for those new to the discussion. Many volumes of this sort aspire toward such balance, but this one succeeds. For those looking for a one-stop approach to the primary debates in this important subfield, this is the place to start shopping." --CHOICE
