Brief, focused, and up-to-date, this must-have text by Stephen Cox, Jennifer Allen, and Robert Hanser takes students on a journey through the juvenile justice system by covering topics such as the history of the juvenile justice system, crime measurements, theories of crime causation, the juvenile justice process, community-based sanctions, treatment and rehabilitation, gangs, and international youth crime. Featuring new examples and new illustrations, Juvenile Justice: A Guide to Theory, Policy, and Practice, Eighth Edition helps readers develop a comprehensive understanding of the interrelationships among theory, policy, and the practical world of juvenile justice today.Every city with a population of 250, 000 or more reported the presence of gangs ( Bilchik, 1999c; McGloin, 2005). Although gang problems continue to be a big-city problem early in the 21st century, they are by no means confined to such cities. ... cities continue to exhibit the highest rates of prevalence for gang activity when compared to smaller cities, suburban regions, or rural counties (see Figure 12.3).
