Product description


"It is well written by 38 contributors from the United States and the United Kingdom, who integrate criminology with developmental psychology. Interesting chapters include how foster care children age out of the system with an increased risk to become involved in criminal activity...This well written book begins this crucial process of learning about the factors underlying persistent criminality."--Doody's Health Sciences Review
