About the Book

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.
