Succinct but thoroughly cutting edge, Siegel and Welsh's JUVENILE DELINQUENCY: THE CORE, 4e presents theory, policy, and the latest research in one value-priced, student-friendly paperback. This brief text is acclaimed for its authority and balance as well as the authors' ability to completely engage students in the juvenile delinquency course.
