This interdisciplinary handbook offers an up-to-date examination of advances in the fields of juvenile delinquency and juvenile justice. The contributors—all leading scholars and practitioners—provide a current state of both fields, while also assessing where they have been and defining where they should go in years to come. They address developments in theory, research, and policy and discuss legal shifts and cultural changes that impact how we think about and handle juvenile delinquency. The handbook’s coverage is broken into seven parts that discuss all the relevant issues, from trends in juvenile justice around the world, to correlates and causes of juvenile delinquency, to current directions in theory and special issues. The chapters also take into account the central issues in the scholarly literature, including social learning theories, opportunity theories, criminal processing, labeling and deterrence, gangs and crime, and community-based sanctions and reentry. With its finger on the pulse of our current understanding of juvenile delinquency and justice, this is an essential compendium for all those working with the topics.
