In a significantly revised and reorganized third edition, Juvenile Delinquency and Antisocial Behavior: A Developmental Perspective presents a research-based and critical overview of delinquency from a psychological perspective. The book focuses on the rapidly expanding research on the relationship between development and antisocial behavior, exploring the multiple causes, manifestations, and developmental pathways of delinquency.
“I found the book to be complete, accurate and on the ‘cutting edge.’ I have taught this subject on both the undergraduate and graduate levels for years, and this is perhaps the most complete and comprehensive text that I have encountered.”
