dc.description.abstract Professor Abrams chronicles the nineteenth century struggle for a special court to rehabilitate delinquent and dependent children and their families. The leaders were dedicated reformers- the "child savers" who sought to remove children from poorhouses, prisons and other harsh institutions that left little hope for productive adulthood. A Very Special Place in Life traces the twentieth century growth of Missouri's juvenile courts. It discusses the profound changes wrought by the United States Supreme Court's Gault decision, which triggered the "due process revolution" in the nation's juvenile courts in 1967. The book examines efforts to reduce disparities between services available to rural and metropolitan children, and between treatment of minority children and others. en_US
