Succinct but thoroughly cutting edge, Siegel and Welsh’s JUVENILE DELINQUENCY: THE CORE, 4e presents theory, policy, and current research in one value-priced, student-friendly paperback. Widely popular for its balanced coverage and engaging presentation, this brief text helps you understand the nature of delinquency, its causes, and current strategies being used to control or eliminate its occurrence. The authors review recent legal cases, research studies, and policy initiatives, as well as offer the latest coverage of emerging policies and programs, juvenile hate crime, social reaction and labeling theories, learning problems and delinquency, gangs, drugs, and capital punishment for juveniles. New boxes emphasize success stories in intervention, while new career profiles provide invaluable insight into potential career paths--from those who live them every day. Helping you maximize your study time--and course success--the text also includes leading-edge learning tools like chapter-by-chapter objectives, critical thinking questions, and a helpful point-by-point summary in each chapter.
