American Juvenile Justice is a definitive volume for courses on the criminology and policy analysis of adolescence. The focus is on the principles and policy of a separate and distinct system of juvenile justice. The book opens with an introduction of the creation of adolescence, presenting a justification for the category of the juvenile or a period of partial responsibility before full adulthood. Subsequent sections include empirical investigations of the nature of youth criminality and legal policy toward youth crime. At the heart of the book is an argument for a penal policy that recognizes diminished responsibility and a youth policy that emphasizes the benefits of letting the maturing process continue with minimal interruption. The book concludes with applications of the core concerns to five specific problem areas in current juvenile justice: teen pregnancy, transfer to criminal court, minority overrepresentation, juvenile gun use, and youth homicide.

It examines how the juvenile justice system began, its current state, and the direction it appears to be heading.

Juvenile Delinquency: Understanding the Origins of Individual Differences presents an integrated theoretical perspective on antisocial behavior for readers who are seeking a more thorough understanding of juvenile delinquency. The authors have integrated what they have learned from recent empirical and conceptual advances in evolutionary psychology, behavioral genetics, and developmental psychology - three fields of inquiry that have experienced great successes in explaining human behavior in general and antisocial behavior in particular. They stress that Darwinian theory provides ultimate explanations of many variations in antisocial behavior and show how their integrated theory can explain differences between male and female delinquency as well as the prediction and prevention of delinquency. The authors also stress that a more thorough understanding of the origins of anti-social behavior may in the long run lead to practical interventions designed to reduce antisocial conduct. Researchers in juvenile delinquency, criminology, aggression, and developmental psychology as well as undergraduate and graduate students in these areas will find this an invaluable resource.
