Editorial Reviews

Review

"Randall Shelden's Delinquency and Juvenile Justice in American Society presents the fortunate reader with a lifetime of the author's study of crime and delinquency. The analysis is informed by a progressive and historical understanding of the nature of American society. Solutions to the problems of delinquency are based on a well-grounded sense of social justice. This will be the text that I will recommend to anyone who wants and needs to know about delinquency and juvenile justice." --Richard Quinney

"Like the price, like the approach and the fact that students are asked to use critical thinking." --Debra Lindberg, Portland State University

"The interdisciplinary range of citations and relevant excerpts demonstrates the author's command of his subject and reflects his desire to deepen the student's understanding of juvenile justice. Shelden adroitly shows how issues of racism, ethnicity, and classism were and remain powerful influences in how juvenile justice is dispensed. His humanitarian concerns for social justice are powerful and provide hope for the future." --Diane Schaefer, University of Michigan, Flint
