Book Description:
Delinquency is an antisocial misdeed in violation of the law by a minor. This book examines the correlation between family environment and juvenile delinquency and criminality. Also discussed are the social factors that influence delinquent behavior. The unresolved and contentious issue of different explanatory "types" or "etiological patterns" among delinquents and the conflict this creates for advocates of "general theory" in delinquency are also addressed. Additional chapters look at adolescent religiosity as a factor for delinquency, psychopathic tendencies and causes of delinquency from a biosocial criminological perspective.
