Summary
"In this volume, top experts in the field of delinquency discuss the implications of the findings of the Pittsburgh Youth Study for current conceptualization of the development and causes of serious delinquency. Violence and Serious Theft is unique in that it combines the strengths of three disciplines to explain delinquency in young people: criminology, developmental psychopathology, and public health. The book addresses questions in three main areas: violence and serious theft as outcomes over time, factors that explain why some young males become involved in serious forms of delinquency and others do not, and factors that explain why some young male offenders stop committing delinquent acts. Violence and Serious Theft is a resource for researchers, practitioners, and students in criminology, developmental, school, and counseling psychology, psychiatry, and public health."--Jacket
