Juvenile Delinquency is a sociological exploration of juvenile delinquency. It explores delinquency: its causes, consequences and treatments. Unified by a theme of prevention, the text analyzes what can be done about delinquent behavior. The authors draw 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. It includes new information on delinquency over the life course, as well as the most recent studies and statistics relevant to the study of juvenile justice. Two new chapters analyze policies and recommendations regarding desistance. Throughout the text, new What Would You Do sections challenge you to consider how you might respond to proposed scenarios.
