This article investigates the role of religion in behaviour before partaking in delinquency and how it able to influence decisions made in life. Moreover, this study focuses on individual's religious practices from childhood, teen and adult. Analysis is based on qualitative data set collected from 4 delinquents who are already convicted and still serving their sentences in the Henry Gurney School (juvenile school).

This concisely written and logically organized text offers students a solid foundation in the theory and intellectual underpinnings of delinquency. Professor Shoemaker presents an integrated and comparative discussion of both individualistic and sociological theories, including: biological and biosocial explanation, psychological theories, theories of social disorganization, lower-class-based theories, interpersonal and situational explanations, control and labelling theories, and the radical theory. Empirical assumptions, major concepts, important contributions in formulation and development, and research findings are detailed for each theory. Special topics include female delinquency and middle-class delinquencies.

This was a great reference, one that I used to gain more insight into my study of Public Safety Emergency Management, and Criminal Justice. I will pass the text to others through donating it to the public library and after completing my Doctoral Degree.

I had to read this book for my "Juvenile Delinquency" (SOC383) class at BYUI. Our teacher chose specific chapters he wanted us to read, but I read the entire thing because I WANTED TO! This book honestly is hard to put down. It has so many theories on why delinquents are the way they are. You may think you know it all, but you don't! This book goes over everything. If you are any type of Sociology, Psychology, or Social Work major, or if any of those are your profession then you NEED to read this book. It opens up a whole new way of thinking. I would definitely recommend it!
