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:

  • More on Positive Youth Development–Chapter 1
  • A new section on Institutional Anomie Theory–Chapter 4
  • A new section on Restorative Justice and Peacemaking–Chapter 6
  • Expanded discussion of gender differences and how that impacts delinquency–Chapter 7
  • A new section on female delinquency–Chapter 7
  • More extensive coverage of bullying–Chapter 9
  • A new section on the victimization of children–Chapter 12
  • A new section on Graduated Sanctions and more–Chapter 15
