Overview

A sociological exploration of the causes and consequences of delinquent behavior.

Juvenile Delinquency, Ninth Edition, explores what delinquency is, its causes and influences, and strategies for delinquency prevention. Beyond simply analyzing the problems of delinquency in American society, the authors also examine what can be done about delinquent behavior. The text follows a strong sociological focus and discusses how delinquency develops across a life course, including how it begins, persists, and/or how it terminates in the lives of individuals. The text is unified by the theme of delinquency prevention and offers evidence-based policy recommendations and suggestions for possible treatment interventions.

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.
