Juvenile delinquency is one of the most complex, interesting, and challenging phenomena in the US. Newspapers, television, and radio bombard us with accounts of juvenile misbehavior and crime which range from truancy to first-degree murder. Consequently, youths who violate the law receive considerable attention from law enforcement officials, social agencies, criminologists, and social and behavioral scientists. This book is guided by the basic premise that juvenile delinquency is inherently social in nature. Thus, any meaningful discussion of delinquency must be expressed in a sociological framework. More specifically, this book approaches delinquency as it relates to and emerges from the youth's family, neighborhood, school, peer group, social class, and overall culture and environment. This edition includes current and controversial topics such as community policing, gun control, hate crimes, the impact of TV violence, boot camps, and capital punishment for juveniles. Sociologists, social workers, law enforcers, teachers, and administrators.

By the year 2000 more than 50% of the world population will be under the age of 15 (9th UN Congress, 1995). Youth crime is increasing around the world (9th UN Congress, 1995). In September 1997, Canadian Justice Minister, Anne McLellan, declared youth justice as a top priority. These and similar facts speak to the urgency for society to study youth crime and examine youth justice systems from a comparative perspective. As our world gets smaller, we discover the urgency and importance of sharing and learning at a global level. This collection offers a unique opportunity to examine six different juvenile justice systems and youth crime around the world. All eleven articles are original contributions from a distinguished set of experts on juvenile justice in their respective countries. Each contribution examines a set of common elements: defining delinquency, describing the nature and extent of youth crime, examining the administration of youth justice, and discussing issues confronting youth crime. This groundbreaking book will be of interest to students, criminologists, and criminal justice policy-makers who are interested in improving the intervention, treatment, and prevention of youth crime, and the administration of youth justice.
