“This text book is an excellent tool that explores issues impacting juvenile delinquency, theories, system response, community interventions and effective programs to help reduce delinquency.”
“This is a new fresh text that applies a different approach and direction. It takes specific issues in juvenile justice and delinquency and puts much more time and effort into addressing these specific trends and issues.”
“The perfect text for any instructor teaching juvenile delinquency. It is comprehensive and tackles contemporary issues rarely addressed in other juvenile delinquency textbooks.”
“I would describe [Juvenile Delinquency] as a very relevant text that allows students to see how reactive decisions of the past with regard to juveniles have very current implications today. It is also easy to comprehend and has a variety of examples that make the content more “real”.”
“This text examines the nature of delinquency, the causes and influences, and what can be done about delinquent behavior. It provides coverage of theory, the latest research, and evidence-based policy.”
“This text is well written and covers a great deal of important information. I strongly recommend this text for uses in classes that are taken by school resource officers and students interested in pursuing a career in Child and Family services…portions of this text would also be beneficial to teachers and administrators in public school systems. I would use this textbook in my Juvenile Delinquency class”.
This is a great title and an amazing book. I did not adopt it because my pedagogy is justice-based. This text is sociologically based and great for a delinquency focused class.
