Summary

Brief. Affordable. Visual.
Part of the groundbreaking Justice Series, Juvenile Delinquency is a clear, thought-provoking exploration of core concepts, the latest research, and current events shaping juvenile delinquency today. Built to be affordable without sacrificing academic rigor, the series uses eye-catching visuals and conversation-starting pedagogy to move you beyond memorization to true understanding. Voices of Delinquency stories at the start of each chapter expose the real impact of criminal justice policy. The 3rd edition has extensive new content and visuals covering the major influencers on juvenile justice and includes a large new section on the philosophy underlying community-based correction.

Juvenile Delinquency, 3rd Edition, is also available via Revel®, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.
