The Development of Child Delinquency and Effective Interventions
It has been acknowledged for some years that the early onset of delinquency can predict a long and serious criminal career. This book argues convincingly that research and interventions should be aimed at child delinquents, aged 12 and under. It also addresses key problems in criminological research.
