List of Subjects
The Juvenile Court of Memphis, founded in 1910, directed delinquent and dependent children into a variety of private charitable organizations and public correctional facilities. Drawing on the court's case files and other primary sources, this book explains the complex interactions between parents, children, and welfare officials in the urban South.
The book focuses
on the people who appeared before the court. Directed for thirty years
by chief judge Camille Kelley, the court was at once a traditional house
of justice, a social services provider, an agent of state control, and
a community-based mediator. The court saw boys and girls, blacks and whites,
native Memphians and newly arrived residents with rural backgrounds. The
book reviews the court experience of the groups, and examines the attitudes
that each group held toward issues of class, race, gender, and justice.
The presence of ethnic
minority communities in Britain has created a variety of issues for the
British legal system. In "Legal Pluralism in Conflict", Prakash
Shah analyzes the relationship between ethnic minority legal traditions
and the official British legal system. The author discusses the case for
a 'legal pluralism' that views ethnic minority legal traditions in conjunction
with the British laws. A series of case studies examine why and how the
current state laws marginalize ethnic minority legal traditions. Topics
include an examination of the differences between the English and South
Asian approaches to homicide laws, attitudes towards polygamy in English
law, and Bangladeshi legal pluralism.
