Summary

Bartollas and Schmalleger's Juvenile Delinquencyis an up-to-date exploration of the causes and consequences of delinquent behavior based on the latest theoretical understanding of delinquency and on the real-life experiences of young people today. Beyond simply analyzing the problems of delinquency in American society, the authors also examine what can be done about delinquent behavior. The text emphasizes the environmental influences on delinquency, including the family, the school, gangs, youth gangs, and drug use. Coverage also includes delinquency across the life course, delinquency prevention, and the social control of youth crime.
