About the Author:

David Musick is Professor of Sociology at the University of Northern Colorado. He is coauthor of Oppression: A Socio-History of Black/White Relations in America, and American Dilemmas.

Review:

Musick has written a refreshing, genuinely new text that provides exceptionally clear guidance through the historical, legal, and analytical complexities of defining and explaining delinquency. The book is extremely interesting to read, largely because of the fascinating account of the history of European and American perceptions and treatment of problem children.
This is the most useful general text on delinquency I have seen because of the clarity with which issues of explanation, method, and policy are sorted out. The use of graph models, charts, and tables to highlight and summarize is superb. Anyone thinking of doing a study, teaching a course, or formulating a policy regarding delinquency should begin with a careful reading of Musick s book. Austin T. Turk, University of California, Riverside"
