Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate and review the literature available on juvenile delinquency among Negroes. The literature consists of a number of empirical studies which are fragmented from each other and often from a definite theoretical orientation. A large part of this paper involves the analysis of these empirical studies and their application to the major theories of delinquent behavior. From this application it is hoped that a more congruent picture of the Negro juvenile delinquent emerges, so that it increases our understanding of this whole area of study.
