Juvenile Delinquency offers a timely and comprehensive look at the issues of criminal behavior and justice related to young persons. In this highly accessible text, Donald J. Shoemaker grounds his readers with a historical perspective and the sociological parameters of delinquency, then presents a series of sharply focused chapters on schooling, religion, and family, as well as sections on drug use, gangs, and female delinquency. This new edition provides the reader with revised examples and updated statistics on crime and youth, enhanced coverage of female delinquency and gangs, as well as, revised material on treatment and intervention programs. It also features summaries and study questions at the end of each chapter. With a strong emphasis on the importance of theory and practice, Juvenile Delinquency is a must-read for understanding crime and youth culture.

Expanding on the exemplary 1st edition, this new volume will be received by new and seasoned scholars as comprehensive, compelling, and user-friendly. (Timothy Austin, Indiana University of Pennsylvania)
I greatly appreciate Donald Shoemaker's new edition of Juvenile Delinquency. The focus on theories of delinquency are especially welcome; not only providing excellent information as it pertains to juvenile delinquency, but also serving as an excellent introduction (or reinforcement, depending on the student) to criminological theories in general. The examples throughout the text are relevant and fresh, and I would definitely assign this text for my undergraduate juvenile justice course.
(Rebecca Welch, Ph.D., lecturer I, University of Texas at San Antonio)
