CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Juvenile Delinquency: An Integrated Approach provides a thorough examination
of the primary theories of delinquency along with the most recent and relevant
research in the field. The social contexts of delinquencyâfamilies, peers,
schools, drugs, and gangsâare considered within the theoretical traditions
that most actively address these arenas. With a writing style praised by
reviewers and students alike, Burfeind and Bartusch do an outstanding job
helping students understand juvenile delinquency. The text is divided into four
main sections, containing 15 chapters. The first two sections focus on defining
and describing juvenile delinquency. The third section concentrates on
explaining delinquent behavior, while the fourth section considers responding
to juvenile delinquency through contemporary juvenile justice systems.
