This comprehensive, best-selling text provides an in-depth analysis of the theories of delinquency, environmental issues, juvenile justice issues, and the juvenile justice system. Renowned for its exhaustive research base, this book presents cutting-edge, seminal research, as well as up-to-the-minute policy and news-worthy examples. Offering objective, to-the-minute presentation of juvenile delinquency theory and juvenile justice policy issues, the authors examine opposing sides of controversial aspects of delinquency and delinquency programs in a balanced, unbiased way. Rewritten for greater clarity, this thoroughly revised edition also achieves new heights of student accessibility through increased pedagogical aids, including the addition of marginal "InfoTrac College Edition Research" boxes, marginal "Web Link" boxes, MicroCase exercises, "Viewpoint" end-of-chapter InfoTrac College Edition features, and a much stronger, broader package of student resources offered via the book-specific Web site. This edition also provides students a gateway to online and multimedia resources that capture the immediacy of the field through CNN video, CD-ROM, and the Internet.

About the Author:

Larry J. Siegel was born in the Bronx in 1947. While living on Jerome Avenue and attending City College of New York (CCNY) in the 1960s, he was swept up in the social and political currents of the time. He became intrigued with the influence contemporary culture had on individual behavior: Did people shape society or did society shape people? He applied his interest in social forces and human behavior to the study of crime and justice. After graduating from CCNY, he attended the newly opened program in criminal justice at the State University of New York at Albany, earning both his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees there. After completing his graduate work, Dr. Siegel began his teaching career at Northeastern University, where he was a faculty member for nine years. After leaving Northeastern, he held teaching positions at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire. He then taught in the School of Criminology and Justice Studies at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell for more than 26 years. Now a Professor Emeritus, he continues to teach online courses. Dr. Siegel has written extensively in the area of crime and justice, including books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, criminal justice, and criminal procedure. He is a court certified expert on police conduct and has testified in numerous legal cases.

Review:

"The major strengths of this textbook is its comprehensiveness and in-depth presentation of all of the major topics in juvenile delinquency and juvenile justice."

"This book does a good job of covering what I believe to be the key areas in juvenile delinquency. The book is generally effective in covering the important theories of the causes and correlates of juvenile delinquency, and I like the fact that there are separate chapters on Gender, Gangs, and Drug Use."

"The terms, concepts and writing in this text is very good. Examples are used to reinforce the text."
