NYU Press Publishes Book Co-Edited by Professor David Tanenhaus

David Tanenhaus is the James E. Rogers Professor of History and Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

The NYU Press recently published a book, Choosing the Future for American Juvenile Justice, that was co-edited by Professor Tanenhaus and Franklin E. Zimring, the William G. Simon Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley Law School.

"This essential volume, edited by two of the leading scholars on juvenile justice, and with contributors who are among the key experts on each issue, focuses on the most pressing issues of the day: the impact of neuroscience on our understanding of brain development and subsequent sentencing, the relationship of schools and the police, the issue of the school-to-prison pipeline, the impact of immigration, the privacy of juvenile records, and the need for national policies—including registration requirements—for juvenile sex offenders. Choosing the Future for American Juvenile Justice is not only a timely collection, based on the most current research, but also a forward-thinking volume that anticipates the needs for substantive and future changes in juvenile justice," according to NYU Press.

Professor Tanenhaus is a co-editor of A Century of Juvenile Justice (University of Chicago Press, 2002), author of Juvenile Justice in the Making (Oxford University Press, 2004) and The Constitutional Rights of Children: In re Gault and Juvenile Justice (University Press of Kansas, 2011), and the immediate past editor of Law and History Review. Professor Tanenhaus teaches American Legal History.
