Our purpose in writing the text was not to persuade students to think about juvenile delinquency in a particular way, but to provide them with a balanced approach of the most current information available on the topic for them to form their own opinions.
Sudbury, MA (Vocus) February 23, 2010
Jones and Bartlett Publishers (J&B) today announced the release of a brand new text titled, Delinquency in Society: The Essentials, by Robert Regoli, PhD, John Hewitt, PhD, and Matt DeLisi, PhD. Written to be a single-source reference for undergraduate students, this introductory text explores how juvenile delinquency is defined, measured, and explained, as well as how the juvenile justice system deals with delinquent youth. Chapters offer coverage of principle sociological and psychological theories, as well as cutting-edge discussion of the biosocial paradigm that articulates the interplay between nature and nurture in the development of delinquency.
“Our purpose in writing the text was not to persuade students to think about juvenile delinquency in a particular way, but to provide them with a balanced approach of the most current information available on the topic for them to form their own opinions,” says author Robert Regoli, PhD. “Additionally, our text covers topics not discussed or researched as thoroughly in any other “core” or “essentials” text.”
A full spectrum of topics ranges from discussions on how to measure delinquency, analyzing the connection between child maltreatment and delinquency, to exploring delinquency prevention programs. This text is a distilled version of the same authors’ larger more in-depth text Delinquency in Society, Eighth Edition. New chapters focus on the police, juvenile courts, and corrections.
Delinquency in Society: The Essentials is available for $95.95 (suggested U.S. list price) through the J&B website at http://www.jbpub.com or by calling 800-832-0034. Those who wish to consider the text for course adoption are invited to request a complimentary review. An accompanying companion website featuring secure instructor and student resources will be available soon. The instructor Test Bank is currently available for download.
