Editorial Reviews

Timothy Austin
Expanding on the exemplary 1st edition, this new volume will be received by new and seasoned scholars as comprehensive, compelling, and user-friendly.
Rebecca Welch
I greatly appreciate Donald Shoemaker's new edition of Juvenile Delinquency. The focus on theories of delinquency are especially welcome; not only providing excellent information as it pertains to juvenile delinquency, but also serving as an excellent introduction (or reinforcement, depending on the student) to criminological theories in general. The examples throughout the text are relevant and fresh, and I would definitely assign this text for my undergraduate juvenile justice course.
August 2009 CHOICE
Shoemaker has written a very comprehensive text exploring how the social issues of race, class, and gender impact juvenile delinquents. Without question, Shoemaker has provided a well-written, readable text. The quality of information is well above average when compared with standard delinquency textbooks. Highly recommended.
