Understanding delinquency and reasons why young adolescents disengage in education and later drop out of school has continually puzzled practitioners and theoreticians. While there have been works that have focused on delinquency and disengagement in education, the role that the family plays on reducing delinquency has generally remained unknown. Theoretical concepts that explain the propensities toward delinquent behavior and disengagement in education are discussed comprehensively in this unique book. "Adopted and cited in the 104th Congress, 2nd Session / Senate Document 104-20, Page 13, National Debate Topic for High Schools, 1996-97, (Pursuant to 44 United States Code, Section 1333)."

MEDIA REVIEWS
I recommend this book for 'neophyte' and 'experienced' research-scholars and teacher-scholars. This book is a great resource material for both pre-service and in-service preparations of teachers. Dedicated parents, teachers, and community leaders can no longer feel helpless-it is time they started believing their efforts can amount to something, i.e., reducing dropout rates and increasing academic engagement. -- Festus E. Obiakor, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
His insightful analysis reveals that support from significant adults-parents, teachers-does much to insulate adolescents against the disquieting tangle of school disengagement and delinquent involvement. -- Francis T. Cullen, Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus, University of Cincinnati
