Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This text examines delinquency in sociocultural, legal, political, economic, and historical contexts. The author argues that the aforementioned contexts impinge on present efforts to prevent and control delinquency. Each chapter includes the axiomatic propositions that capture the most important ideas, as well as interviews with delinquents and with leading spokespeople in delinquency theory and research. Analyzes topics such as male and female chronic offenders, including gang members, guns, drugs, modes of intervention, juvenile homicide, feminist theories on delinquency, and social policy.
