Jennifer Ann Trost
Gateway to Justice: The Juvenile Court and Progressive Child Welfare in a Southern City
University of Georgia Press, 2005.

KFX1838.T76 2005

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.


Prakash Shah
Legal Pluralism in Conflict: Coping with Cultural Diversity in Law
Glass House Press, 2005

K236.S53 2005

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.
