Summary

Theories of Delinquency provides a comprehensive survey of major theoretical approaches to the understanding of delinquent behavior. It includes discussions and evaluations of all major individualistic and sociological theories, presenting each theory in a standard format with basic assumptions, important concepts, and critical evaluations of the relevant research. Theories covered include biological and psychological explanations, anomie and social disorganization, differential association, drift theory, labeling theory, critical theories, and explanations of female delinquency. Now in its fifth edition, Theories of Delinquency contains updated discussions of these theories, with special attention given to developmental theories of delinquency. It also offers coverage of international aspects of delinquency theory. Clearly written and consistently organized, Theories of Delinquency is important reading for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in crime and delinquency.
