Summary
"Over the past decade and a half, girls' involvement in the juvenile justice system has increased. Yet the topic remains understudied by criminologists. The Delinquent Girl is a "state-of-the-field" effort that identifies and analyzes the kinds of crimes that girls commit and the causes of girls' delinquency. The distinguished academics and practitioners who contributed to this volume provide an overview of the research on girls' delinquency, discuss policy implications, and point to areas where further research is critically needed." "The book begins with an examination of the major theories and explanations of female delinquency and considers the "gender gap" between male and female offenders. Other issues, such as the role of the juvenile justice system and changes in justice policies, are also addressed. Throughout The Delinquent Girl, the contributors use criminological and feminist theories to consider causes and implications - e.g., family dysfunction, community factors - and provide insight into treating and preventing juvenile delinquency."--Jacket
