Details: Product Description Juvenile Delinquency in a Diverse Society presents a fresh, critical examination of juvenile delinquency in the context of real communities and social policies― addressing many social factors that shape juvenile delinquency and its control, including race, ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality. Authors Kristin A. Bates and Richelle S. Swan use true stories and contemporary examples to link theories of delinquency to current public policies and to existing community programs, encouraging readers to consider how theories of delinquency can be used to create new policies and programs in their own communities. The Third Edition includes a new chapter on policing and juveniles, updated scholarship that strengthens the integration of both classic and cutting-edge research, and updates to the book’s supportive pedagogical features to reflect current events and the experiences of diverse populations of youth.
