Juvenile Justice in Rural America.
Jankovic, Joanne, Ed.; And Others
Producing a much-needed organized body of literature about rural juvenile justice, 14 papers (largely from the 1979 National Symposium on Rural Justice) are organized to identify current issues, identify forces causing changes in current systems, review programs responding to rural juvenile justice problems, and provide planning models to aid decision-making. Prefacing each section is an introduction reviewing material contained therein. Contents are: "Issues in Rural Juvenile Justice" by DeJames; "Rural Crime, Rural Criminals, Rural Delinquents: Past Research and Future Directions" by Warner; "Juvenile Justice: A Rural-Urban Comparison" by Pawlak; "Crime, Delinquency and Criminal Justice Service in Rural America" by Johnson; "Juvenile Justice in West Virginia: A Changing Landscape" by Chambers and Miner: "Rural Response to Status Offender Legislation" by Jankovic; "The Delinquent Youth in the Rural Area" by Dahl; "Drug Use and Delinquent Behavior of Small Town and Rural Youth" by Forslund; "The Runaway Youth Issue: Implication for Rural Communities" by Libertoff; "Child Protection in a Rural Setting" by Shepard; "Youth Crisis Services: Short-Term Community-Based Residential Treatment" by Dimock; "Dimensions of Youth Employment in Rural America" by Lawless; "Educational Justice for Children in Rural/Nonmetropolitan Areas" by Jankovic; and "The Economics of Concern and Compassion: Applications to Rural Justice" by Brown.
