About this item

This lively, visual undergraduate text can be used in courses in sociology, social policy, policing, corrections, and juvenile delinquency. Diverging from the mainstream approach, the text offers an emphasis on social diversity (race, class, gender, gender identity) and a systematic critical approach to evaluating social behavior and social institutions. Theory is linked to cases of public policy and examples of existing community programs responding to juvenile delinquency. Coverage encompasses micro-level, macro-level, and critical theories of juvenile delinquency, as well as the social contexts of juvenile delinquency: families, schools, peers, gangs, and drugs. The second half of the text describes various responses to juvenile delinquency, from policing to restorative approaches. Several types of boxes are geared to student engagement, touching on topics such as live streaming juvenile crime, police abuse, African American girls and violence, and parenting in prison. The text’s reader-friendly color layout features color photos and charts, chapter opening objectives, margin terms, and discussion, activity, and policy questions. A 10-page glossary and a companion web site are also included. This second edition contains boxes on the impact of media on juveniles’ expectations and behavior, plus expanded material on policing, mass incarceration, the war on drugs, and parent criminality, as well as same-sex households, sexual identity, and other queer issues.
