About this title

Synopsis:

Juvenile Delinquency  provides a comprehensive, cutting-edge overview of all aspects of juvenile delinquency with a sociological focus. This book examines the explanations of juvenile delinquency, the environmental influences on delinquent behavior, the efforts of society to prevent juvenile delinquency, an evaluation of the justice system’s effectiveness in controlling juvenile delinquency, the review of recent legislation and court rulings on the rights of youthful offenders, and the rights of adolescents in general.

From the Back Cover:

Juvenile Delinquency provides a comprehensive, cutting-edge overview of all aspects of juvenile delinquency with a sociological focus.

As Simon Dinitz, Ohio State University, says Clemens Bartollas is genuinely interested in delinquents and in all those who work with and have contact with delinquents. This book reflects Professor Bartollas' abiding intellectual and emotional commitment to understanding and reducing delinquency, as well as ameliorating the personal and social ills that generate the massive delinquency problems not only in the United States but also in nearly all modern industrial nations.

Every edition is thoroughly updated to reflect current research. Some exciting new updates in this edition:

  • A new emphasis on the importance of human agency, or the interpretation and meaning that delinquents themselves bring to their social world¬ - as hot area within juvenile delinquency research.
  • Coverage of delinquency across the life course, one of the most promising and exciting perspectives in studying delinquency today, can be found in each chapter.
  • Increased focus on race and delinquency, especially in Chapters 7 and 10, allows for an examination of how racial factors affect the definition, handling, and processing of juvenile delinquents.
  • An updated Chapter 10, “Gang Delinquency” provides more explanation of female gangs.
  • Increased coverage of international juvenile justice in Chapters 14 and 15.
