An engaging and realistic vignette opens each chapter to stimulate thinking and classroom discussion, and its implications are woven throughout the chapter. The exceedingly readable narrative explains basic terms and concepts along with valuable historical background. Three themes, woven throughout the materials, given students a solid understanding: the role of theory as a tool to describe, understand, predict and control delinquency; how appreciating the historical background can give insight into future practices; and the importance of globalization in a world increasingly interconnected by the Internet and social media― international perspectives are included in every chapter. Critical thinking questions at the end of each chapter can be used for classroom discussions, small group exercises, or individual review. Key terms, defined in the margins, and a comprehensive glossary help students learn and review terminology. Juvenile Justice is accompanied by an extensive Instructor’s Manual, which provides the teacher with ancillary material as well as a perspective on the organization and content of each chapter, with a full Test Bank.

Thoroughly updated, the revised Third Edition addresses the latest trends in juvenile justice, supported by the most recent data sources available. The cutting-edge chapter on non-delinquent children in the juvenile justice system (dependent, neglected, and abused children) has been substantially updated. The delinquency prevention chapter has been updated to include a results-based review of programming that works, as well as an expanded treatment of the federal government’s role in providing leadership in this critical part of juvenile justice. The notable chapter on gangs has been expanded to a broader discussion of juvenile violence across the board.
