Streamlined in this edition, this book examines the causes and consequences of delinquent behavior using a strong sociological focus. Relevant chapters discuss the environmental influences on delinquency–such as gangs, the family, school, and drugs. Each chapter ends with a discussion of delinquency across the life course and a section on social policy. Prevention and treatment is emphasized throughout, as the book moves beyond simply analyzing the problems of delinquency to exploring what can be done about delinquent behavior. Features include:
