Abstract

Juvenile delinquency is a vague term covering almost any sort of youthful "anti-social" behavior from mere disobedience to serious crime. Newspapers today are filled with accounts of vandalism, thefts, and acts of violence committed by teen-agers, often with no apparent reason. A massive literature on causes and cures has piled up. Yet delinquency continues to increase, regardless of reform measures, exhortations, research reports, or "treat 'em rougher" tactics.
