A Comparative Analysis of Delinquency Prevention Theory: Preventing Delinquency. Volume One of Nine.
The Task Force to Develop Standards and Goals for Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention was initiated in the Spring of 1975 by the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) of the U.S. Department of Justice. The efforts of this task force resulted in nine reports, each one dealing with one aspect of the Juvenile Justice System. This particular volume is intended to transmit to government officials, juvenile justice personnel, legislators and concerned citizens information about delinquency prevention. Discussion falls into five major areas: (1) the breakdown of social controls, (2) delinquency as a subculture, (3) psychological theories of delinquency, (4) biological theories of delinquent behavior, and (5) labeling theory.
