Product Overview

In this important classic work, one of America''s foremost social scientistsintroduces a signifi cant approach to the causation of delinquency andadvances an all-inclusive strategy for coping with a national problem ofcontinuing concern. MacIver shows that delinquency is caused by a complexand bewildering interplay of many factors and is not susceptible to simplisticexplanations and solutions. He advances reasoned critiques of varioustheories regarding the causation of delinquency, while suggesting that thetwo combined factors most closely associated with delinquency-despite itsincrease among middle class youth-are urbanized poverty and ethnic or racialdiscrimination. Citing the encouraging results obtained by the establishmentof predelinquent gangs by various organizations, he demonstrates thatprevention of delinquency is far more successful than rehabilitation.
