Juvenile Delinquency in a Diverse Society, 2nd Edition, (PDF) offers students with a fresh, critical examination of juvenile delinquency in the context of social policies and real communities and social policies ― combining many social factors that mold juvenile delinquency and its control, including ethnicity, race, gender, class, and sexuality. Expert authors Richelle S. Swan and Kristin A. Bates use true stories and contemporary examples to connect theories of delinquency not just to existing public policies, but to present community programs―motivating readers to deliberate how theories of delinquency can be used to form new policies and programs in their own communities. Readers will get a foundational understanding of the social diversity that contextualizes varying behavior and experiences of juvenile delinquency, together with a deeper appreciation for the social justice, policies, and community programs that make up the juvenile system.
