In under 500 pages, Siegel and Welsh’s Juvenile Delinquency: The Core, 4e helps readers understand the nature of delinquency, its causes, and current strategies being used to control or eliminate its occurrence. The authors review recent legal cases, research studies, and policy initiatives.

A new boxed feature emphasizes success stories in intervention, while career profiles offer invaluable insight into related jobs--from those who live them every day. Completely current, the Fourth Edition offers enhanced coverage of emerging policies and programs, juvenile hate crime, social reaction and labeling theories, learning problems and delinquency, gangs, drugs, and capital punishment for juveniles.

It emphasizes intervention success stories and includes new career profiles that provide invaluable insight into potential career paths--from those who work them every day. In addition, leading-edge learning aids like chapter objectives, critical thinking questions, and a helpful point-by-point summary in each chapter help students maximize their course success.
