Today's Delinquent, v1 Jul 1982 v2 May 1983
This document contains the first two volumes of "Today's Delinquent," an annual publication of the National Center for Juvenile Justice. The primary focus of both volumes is serious crime by juveniles. Articles in volume one include: (1) "Violent Juvenile Crime: The Problem in Perspective" (Howard N. Snyder); (2) "Canon to the Left, Canon to the Right: Can the Juvenile Court Survive?" (John L. Hutzler); (3) "Juvenile Delinquency Research: Truths, Myths and Hopes" (Richard J. Gable); and (4) "Issues for Resolution in the Eighties: Family Courts and Retribution" (Hunter Hurst). Much of the content for volume two was drawn from a research symposium on the serious juvenile offender. Volume two includes "What To Do about Serious Delinquency: Do Good? Do Bad? Do Nothing?" (Richard J. Gable and Patricia C. McFall), a review of significant research studies on serious juvenile crime. Also included is the article "City Delinquents and Their Country Cousins: A Description of Juvenile Delinquency in Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan Areas" (Howard N. Snyder and Ellen H. Nimick) which identifies the volume of serious crime that can be attributed to youth from official records and contrasts between urban and rural communities. (NB)
