Juvenile Delinquency Causation: A Study of Delinquency Factors in Thirty-Five Cases Treated by the Student Training Unit of the Juvenile Aid Bureau, New York City, 1955
In considering this vast and intricate subject, we must bear in mind that juvenile delinquency is not a new problem. It is true that it has increased in recent years and because of this fact, cities, states and the country as a whole has been forced to focus responsibility for the startling increase of delinquents. We have always had criminals, adolescents and adults. Recent publicity, however, has given us more knowledge of delinquency as a problem and this information has suggested national concern regarding it. Great social changes have swept the entire world in the past two decades. The Second World War, particularly, took its toll socially and psychologically from almost every home. Some survived the calamity, others felt its serious effects. Economic instability, disrupted home life, frustration of parents, deprivation of children and fear of the future all provide the basis for much unhappiness and bewilderment.
