9780199388462: Juvenile Delinquency: Causes and Control

An essential resource for exploring juvenile delinquency in the twenty-first century, Juvenile Delinquency: Causes and Control, Fifth Edition, offers a clear and concise overview of the latest theories and research on the causes and control of delinquency.

Instead of attempting to provide a sweeping view of the entire subject, Robert Agnew and new coauthor Timothy Brezina organize the text around three major questions: What is the nature and extent of delinquency? What are the causes of delinquency? What strategies should we employ to control delinquency? These thought-provoking questions draw students into the text, challenging them to use major theories to explain the basic facts about delinquency, to understand the research on its causes, and to develop and evaluate programs and policies for its control.

About the Author:


Robert Agnew is Professor of Sociology at Emory University and Past President of the American Society of Criminology.

Timothy Brezina is Professor of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Georgia State University.

Review:


"The authors' 'question-asking approach' is an excellent way to focus the information that they present. The writing style is excellent and the teaching aids (thought and discussion questions, key terms, text boxes, etc.) are terrific. Superbly done!"--Randolph A. Matuscak, California University of Pennsylvania


"This text stands out from others that I've read in that the authors take an enormous amount of data, much of which is confusing and/or contradictory, and make sense of it."--William Mark Franks, University of Mississippi
