Juvenile Delinquency.
Seiferth, Berniece
The author discusses juvenile delinquency in an attempt to understand its growth and the trends it has taken in the United States during the 20th century. He gives careful consideration to the study, "Unraveling Delinquency", written by the Gluecks in 1950, one of the most comprehensive in this entire area. Results from more recent studies indicate that the problem may be more evenly distributed in the various socio-economic strata than has been previously thought. The many treatment programs provided for juvenile offenders are described, as is the importance of preventative measures. The author argues that it is time for the public to stop throwing brickbats at the younger generation and begin, rather, laying the bricks that will provide the solid foundation for a bulwark of prevention.
