Overview


Over the last two decades, researchers have made significant discoveries about the causes and origins of delinquency. Specifically, we have learned a great deal about adolescent development and its relationship to decision-making, about multiple factors that contribute to delinquency, and about the processes and contexts associated with the course of delinquent careers. Over the same period, public officials have made sweeping jurisprudential, jurisdictional, and procedural changes in our juvenile justice systems.

The Oxford Handbook of Juvenile Crime and Juvenile Justice presents a timely compilation of state-of-the-art critical reviews of knowledge about causes of delinquency and their significance for justice policy, and about developments in the juvenile justice system to prevent and control youth crime. The first half of the handbook focuses on juvenile crime and examines trends and patterns in delinquency and victimization, explores causes of delinquency-at the individual, micro-social, and macro-social levels, and from natural and social science perspectives-and their implications for structuring a youth justice system. The second half of the handbook concentrates on juvenile justice and examines a range of issues-including the historical origins and re-invention of the juvenile court; juvenile offenders' mental health status and considerations of trial competence and culpability; intake, diversion, detention, and juvenile courts; and transfer/waiver strategies-and considers how the juvenile justice system itself influences delinquency.

The Oxford Handbook of Juvenile Crime and Juvenile Justice provides a comprehensive overview of juvenile crime and juvenile justice administration by authors who are all leading scholars involved in cutting-edge research, and is an essential resource for scholars, students, and justice officials.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Barry Feld (University of Minnesota) and Donna Bishop (Northeastern University) open this nearly 1,000-page resource volume noting that, in a rational world, what we know about juvenile crime and what we are doing in terms of juvenile justice policy and practice would, one way or another, be aligned with each other... In between these chapters, Feld and Bishop have gathered a stellar cast of academics and researchers... In the end, Feld and Bishop share some optimism about a retreat from repressive policies and practices of the past... The Oxford Handbook of Juvenile Crime and Juvenile Justice is clearly a valuable resource that should enhance such a retreat." --Journal of Community Corrections

"...A work that provides both technical facility for those already initiated and an unintimidating overview for those new to the discussion. Many volumes of this sort aspire toward such balance, but this one succeeds. For those looking for a one-stop approach to the primary debates in this important subfield, this is the place to start shopping." --CHOICE
