Summary

Streamlined in this edition, this book examines the causes and consequences of delinquent behavior using a strong sociological focus. Relevant chapters discuss the environmental influences on delinquency-such as gangs, the family, school, and drugs. Each chapter ends with a discussion of delinquency across the life course and a section on social policy. Prevention and treatment is emphasized throughout, as the book moves beyond simply analyzing the problems of delinquency to exploring what can be done about delinquent behavior.
