This text examines the position of children in society, the nature and extent of juvenile delinquency, its social context, the major theoretical explanations relating to its causes and the ways in which the juvenile justice system responds. The book's child-centred approach has been retained and expanded in the second edition. This approach is designed to portray the problem of delinquency within the context of adult-child relations, as the authors point out that most forms of juvenile delinquency are products of how children have been perceived and treated. This edition includes a new chapter focusing on female delinquency and a chapter on juvenile gangs. The following are also available: an instructor's manual (0-07-051334-1); computer test bank 3.50 (0-07-833460-8); and computer test bank MAC (0-07-833462-4).
