This work is a collection of 78 appellate decisions in juvenile law that span the range of judicial opinion in this field during the 20th century. The work is not arranged in the typical law school casebook style by subject or topical heading, but rather by chronological date from 1905 to 1998. This arrangement gives the reader a sense of the flow of judicial opinion in juvenile justice from the court’s earliest decisions expounding the uniqueness of the juvenile court and its radical break with the criminal law and the punishing sanctions of 19th-century penology. In all, these cases reflect a century of caselaw that exhibits both contradiction and promise – a contradiction between the means-end role of juvenile law in the United States and a promise held out for a court seeking to come to grips with what many see as a rising tide of teen and sub-teen predatory criminality.
