For courses in juvenile delinquency.
A sociological exploration of juvenile delinquency — and how to prevent it
Juvenile Delinquency explores delinquency, including its causes, consequences, and treatments. Unified by a theme of prevention, it analyzes what can be done about delinquent behavior. The text draws on real-life scenarios, statistics, and evidence-based findings to illuminate core influences on delinquency, including gangs, race, gender, and socioeconomic status. The 10th edition has been substantially updated, such as with new information on delinquency over the life course and the most recent studies and statistics relevant to the study of juvenile justice.
