This is the fifth edition of a book that has long been popular with undergraduate students. It provides a sociological examination of delinquency, including such learning apparatus as the contextual perspective and axiomatic propositions. The revision includes a new chapter on social reaction theories and one on female delinquency. The chapters on causation examine old as well as new theories. The chapters on the family, school, gangs and drugs have been thoroughly revised and updated for the fifth edition. An emphasis on social policy and policy recommendations in almost every chapter reveal what is needed to improve society's response to the delinquent. Case examples of real delinquents will give the reader a glimpse of what it feels like to be viewed and processed as a delinquent. The final unit on social control of delinquency includes such important topics as the future trends of juvenile crime, the international context, the changing nature of the juvenile court, and the extent of discrimination found in the juvenile justice system. Axiomatic propositions after each chapter capture the most important ideas of the material presented. For anyone interested in sociology, criminology, and criminal justice.About the Author:
