Book review: "Justice Denied: What Americans must do to Protect its Children," by M.A. Hamilton (Cambridge University Press, 2008)
Gutzmann, Brittney A. (2014). Review of the book "Justice denied: What Americans must do to protect its children," by M.A. Hamilton. The Advanced Generalist: Social Work Research Journal, 1(2), p 87-89.
The book "Justice Denied: What Americans Must Do to Protect its Children" provides a stark contrast between the rights of victims and perpetrator by providing real-life stories of domestic violence, abuse, and sexual assault cases and how the criminal justice system often biases the offender. Gutzmann asserts that this book is an excellent preparation for those entering the child welfare field and that readers will be moved to support change in our civil and criminal justice systems.
