Delinquency and Juvenile Justice in American Society
In Delinquency and Juvenile Justice in American Society, criminologist Randall G. Shelden analyzes juvenile issues through the lens of social justice, linking social inequality, including the unique problems of girls growing up in a patriarchal society, to delinquency and crime. The book considers delinquency in the context of family, community, school, peers, and culture, and takes a critical look at whether current efforts to prevent and divert juveniles from criminal and delinquent behavior are effective.
