No Matter How Loud I Shout: A Year in the Life of Juvenile Court

Author: Edward Humes
Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Humes spent 1994 surveying the largely futile attempts of Los Angeles to deal with its juvenile crime. He concentrates here on a few who have not let themselves be overwhelmed by the deluge of defendants-80,000 cases are pending at any given time. Humes follows closely the cases of seven young people who were caught up in the system, three of whom have been saved by it. Maybe.
