This book is fascinating, disturbing, and sobering. All at once! I would strongly recommend this book for anyone who works in the Juvenile Justice system. I now have a better understanding of the disproportionate minority contact and confinement experienced by kids of color.

This is an outstanding book. It constitutes a seminal work in the field, on par with Platt's (1977) The Child Savers: The Invention of Delinquency. Ward fills an important gap in the literature by skillfully detailing the central roles of race, racially exclusive conceptions of childhood and adolescence, and racial group relations in the formation and reform of the juvenile justice system.
