Leslie Wilkins, a criminologist respected on both sides of the Atlantic, argues for the need of adopting new techniques, borrowed from consumerism, to deal with crime analysis. Believing that the public, or consumer of criminal justice services, has fared poorly from the existing criminal justice system, he suggests that better _market research_ and management techniques will, if adopted, improve the understanding of both crime and sentencing.

Ist abweichendes Verhalten die Folge stabiler Persönlichkeitsmerkmale oder resultiert es aus variablen Bedingungen der sozialen Umwelt? Diese alte, aber immer noch aktuelle Kontroverse bildet den Hintergrund für die vorliegenden Analysen der Lebens- und Kriminalitätsgeschichte junger Wiederholungstäter aus der Tübinger Jungtäter-Vergleichsuntersuchung (TJVU). Wie die Analysen des Legalverhaltens von der Geburt bis ins späte Erwachsenenalter zeigen, kommt es bei den meisten Probanden zu zahlreichen Veränderungen und Wendepunkten in der Kriminalitätsentwicklung. Ungeachtet der Sozialisationsbedingungen in der Kindheit und Jugend lassen sich im Erwachsenenalter sehr unterschiedliche Verlaufs- und Entwicklungsmuster identifizieren. Ausschlaggebend für den Beginn, den Abbruch oder die Fortsetzung einer kriminellen Karriere, so die Hauptthese der Autoren, ist weniger die Vorgeschichte, als vielmehr die jeweilige aktuelle soziale Einbindung und die damit verbundene soziale Kontrolle eines Individuums.

Family Life and Youth Offending

The contention that young people commit offences due to inadequate parenting and parental difficulties has been an abiding feature of the debates on juvenile offending. Previously this evidence has been used to design prevention programmes for young offenders who have been processed by the criminal justice system, but this book examines how this evidence can be used to prevent offending in the first place. Examining the relationship between the causes of youth offending and the legal duty of the state to address those causes, this book provides evidence to show that improving the family environment could be the most effective and enduring strategy for combating juvenile delinquency and associated behavioural, social and emotional problems. It examines how current child welfare legislation, in particular the Children Act 1989, could be employed to prevent children who are at risk of engaging in antisocial and delinquent behaviour from offending. It abandons the traditional ‘welfare vs. justice’ dichotomy and instead outlines a new approach which focuses on the rights and needs of young people in troubled circumstances and their families.

Detailed and comprehensive, this volume presents authoritative discussions by leading scholars on issues surrounding serious and violent juvenile offenders. This population is responsible for a disproportionate percentage of all crime and poses the greatest challenge to juvenile justice policymakers. This volume integrates knowledge about risk and protective prevention programs, so that conclusions from each area can inform the other.

Dieses Buch ist ein bedeutender Beitrag zur Standortbestimmung der täterorientierten Forschung in der Kriminologie. Die Beiträge befassen sich mit der Frage, wie Kriminalität als Erscheinung im Leben von Individuen auftritt, sich ausprägt und gegebenenfalls strukturiert, welche typischen Verlaufsgestalten sich formen, wie Rückfälligkeit sich entwickelt bis hin zu einer sog. kriminellen Karriere. Vorformen der Kriminalität (wie Frühdelinquenz) und Randbereiche (wie Alkohol-, Drogenkonsum, psychiatrisch relevante Auffälligkeiten) werden mit einbezogen. Die Beiträge erstrecken sich auch auf methodologische und methodische Grundsatzfragen des empirischen Zugangs zur Verbrechenswirklichkeit, der erfahrungswissenschaftlichen Erfassung des Täters in seinen sozialen Bezügen, der forensischen Begutachtung und der (therapeutischen) Behandlung.

This book remains organized around a conceptual scheme, unlike the core of most other books on this subject which use a "crime-of-the-week" approach (for example, a chapter on violent crime, a chapter on organized crime, and so on). This book contains as much material on those crimes as other books, but the material appears in chapters that treat conceptual issues, such as learning to commit crime and the organization of criminal behavior. This edition includes references to current writings in professional journals and books in criminology, sociology, and other disciplines. New material reports on stalking, crime and the racial composition of communities, maltreatment and delinquency, female violent offenders, and effective crime-prevention measures. Also included are references to recent events such as the Columbine High School murders and Abner Louima police brutality case. For anyone interested in criminology and sociology.
