This text is one of three books in the Criminal Justice Case Briefs series, each of which provides a summary and analysis of leading cases in a particular area of criminal justice: criminal procedure law, corrections law, or juvenile law. Craig Hemmens is the lead author on all three books; there is a different set of coauthors on each book, all of whom are experts in their respective areas. Easily accessible to undergraduates, each volume has the same basic outline and format, which is neither exclusively "casebook" nor "textbook." The purely casebook approach is not always appropriate for undergraduates, whose primary focus is learning the law, not "how to think like a lawyer." Therefore, these books present briefs (or summaries) of the opinions, along with analyses and explanations, instead of the actual opinions themselves. This allows instructors to use the books as either supplements or as main, stand-alone texts. The volumes also include less background and extraneous material than most textbooks; the cases are presented in a context, with relevant commentary, which allows students to better understand the significance of the legal holdings, explains the Court's holdings, and places each case in context with the Court's other decisions. Criminal Justice Case Briefs: Significant Cases in Juvenile Justice is comprehensive in its treatment of juvenile law, covering all of the major cases in the area. It features a list of cases, in alphabetical order and grouped by topic; briefs of each case, arranged by topic; a short introduction to each topic, intended to put the cases into context and provide some unity; and an index.

Why have American policies failed to reduce the racial inequalities still pervasive throughout the nation? Has President Barack Obama defined new political approaches to race that might spur unity and progress? Still a House Divided examines the enduring divisions of American racial politics and how these conflicts have been shaped by distinct political alliances and their competing race policies. Combining deep historical knowledge with a detailed exploration of such issues as housing, employment, criminal justice, multiracial census categories, immigration, voting in majority-minority districts, and school vouchers, Desmond King and Rogers Smith assess the significance of President Obama's election to the White House and the prospects for achieving constructive racial policies for America's future. Offering a fresh perspective on the networks of governing institutions, political groups, and political actors that influence the structure of American racial politics, King and Smith identify three distinct periods of opposing racial policy coalitions in American history. The authors investigate how today's alliances pit color-blind and race-conscious approaches against one another, contributing to political polarization and distorted policymaking. Contending that President Obama has so far inadequately confronted partisan divisions over race, the authors call for all sides to recognize the need for a balance of policy measures if America is to ever cease being a nation divided. Presenting a powerful account of American political alliances and their contending racial agendas, Still a House Divided sheds light on a policy path vital to the country's future.
