Juvenile Delinquency: An Integrated Approach, 3rd Edition, (PDF) provides a comprehensive introduction to juvenile delinquency by defining and explaining juvenile delinquency, examining explanations for delinquent behavior, and considering modern efforts to control delinquency through prevention and juvenile justice. The text nurtures an understanding of juvenile delinquency by examining and associating key criminological theories and research. Coverage includes:

    • the historical origins and change of “juvenile delinquency” and juvenile justice;
    • evidence-based practice in delinquency prevention and existing juvenile justice.
    • theoretical explanations of delinquency, with perceptions from biosocial criminology, rational choice, routine activities, social control, social learning, social structure, labeling, and critical criminologies;
    • the nature of delinquency, addressing the extent of delinquent offenses, the social links of offending and victimization (age, race, gender and ethnicity, and social class), and the developmental patterns of offending;

Fully revised and updated, the new edition includes the latest theory and research in the field of juvenile delinquency and offers expanded discussion of contemporary juvenile justice reform, evidence-based practice in delinquency prevention, and unequal minority contact throughout the juvenile justice process. This ebook is essential reading for courses on juvenile delinquency and juvenile justice.

The ebook is supported by a range of captivating pedagogical features. Every chapter includes key terms, an opening case study, learning objectives, box inserts that offer practical application of theory and research, critical thinking questions, recommended reading, helpful websites, and a glossary of key terms.
