This comprehensive, best-selling text provides an in-depth analysis of the theories of delinquency, environmental issues, juvenile justice issues, and the juvenile justice system. Renowned for its exhaustive research base, this book presents cutting-edge, seminal research, as well as up-to-the-minute policy and news-worthy examples. Offering objective, to-the-minute presentation of juvenile delinquency theory and juvenile justice policy issues, the authors examine opposing sides of controversial aspects of delinquency and delinquency programs in a balanced, unbiased way. Rewritten for greater clarity, this thoroughly revised edition also achieves new heights of student accessibility through increased pedagogical aids, including the addition of marginal "InfoTrac College Edition Research" boxes, marginal "Web Link" boxes, MicroCase exercises, "Viewpoint" end-of-chapter InfoTrac College Edition features, and a much stronger, broader package of student resources offered via the book-specific Web site. This edition also provides students a gateway to online and multimedia resources that capture the immediacy of the field through CNN video, CD-ROM, and the Internet.
