Editorial Reviews

Review

"The text is organized in a manner that allows for optimal student learning. The correct mix of theory and practice has been achieved. The 'real-life' snapshots serve the purpose of gaining student interest in the topic."

"Major strengths include the breadth of coverage; the extensive use and variety of visual aids, graphs, charts, and photographs to supplement text; timely and interesting examples to illustrate concepts; and a refreshingly straightforward academic writing style."

"I think the strengths of this book lie in its comprehensiveness, the fact that it is well updated and current and uses recent examples throughout to highlight the issues."

"I chose this text because it is the most thorough in its coverage of the current research literature in juvenile delinquency, and the balanced discussion of research and policy controversies encourages students to think critically and evaluate evidence. Students like the textbook."

Bought this book used for my wife who was tutoring a course at the local community college at the time. The book was as promised and we were both very impressed by its condition. We would have preferred the 11th edition but with a price difference of about $150 it was well worth the value.

I use this textbook for one of my classes and I must say it's a bit of a dense book.

I feel that sometimes I'm drowned with an excess of information, when a concept could be explained quite simply. However, it does goes in depth with concepts that need it, although there could be tweaks and improvements there.

Overall, it's an interesting book and will command interest every once in a while. I love the segments that provide a relatively recent example of say for example, juvenile serial killers. To me, that brings application and appeal. Otherwise, it's not a torturous book for many college students like me. Generally, it is a good supplement to any juvenile delinquency class.

The book is very detailed and descriptive and has made class much easier to fallow. Some chapters are long and so full of information that it does take some time and effort to read. The placement of chapters and key notes flow well with one another. As to the books condition, it was great when i received it and has maintained well.

Format: Loose Leaf
This book is the exact same as the hardcover, bound version. It has the glossy, colored pages including the paperback cover. It is 3-hole punched to put into a binder and is easy to carry and use. My professor was impressed with it. I put it in a 1 1/2" binder and it fit great. No complaints from this girl!
