 The 1996-1997 high school debate topic is "Resolved: that the Federal 
Government should establish a program to substantially reduce juvenile 
crime in the United States."

 In compliance with 44 U.S. Code 1333, the Congressional Research Service 
of the Library of Congress prepared this compilation of materials and 
bibliographic references to assist high school debaters in researching the 
topic.  In selecting items for this manual, the Congressional Research 
Service (CRS) has sampled the wide spectrum of opinions reflected in 
current literature on these questions.  No preference for any policy is 
indicated by the selection or positioning of articles cited, nor is CRS 
disapproval of any policy or article to be inferred from its omission.

 The annotated bibliography covers such topics as delinquency and prevention, 
juvenile courts, corrections, rehabilitation, drug and alcohol abuse, gangs, 
and school violence.

 A research guide is included at the end of this volume; it is intended to 
help debaters identify further references and organizational resources on 
their own.  Also included is a list of relevant publications that are 
available for purchase from the Superintendent of Documents, Government 
Printing Office.  Some of the U.S. Government documents listed in the manual 
may be found in U.S. Government depository libraries, which can be 
identified by local public libraries.  The Library of Congress cannot 
distribute copies of these or other materials to debaters.  Because this 
document is so widely used, GPO has also placed it on its Web site for direct 
viewing or downloading into ASCII text or Adobe Acrobat Portable Document 
Format (PDF).  The address is:

 The bibliography and research guide were prepared by Tangela G. Roe, 
Bibliographer in the Library Services Division.  Valerie Miles-Washington 
produced the bibliography and the research guide.  

 Good luck to each debater in researching, preparing, and presenting 
arguments on this year's topic.

  "Instead of viewing delinquency in terms of only one context, such as that 
of the legal or justice system, this book examines delinquency in broader 
terms--the sociocultural, legal, political, economic, and historical 
contexts.  All these contexts impinge on present efforts to prevent and 
control delinquency and on future attempts to create hope and a new vision 
for youths in trouble.  This edition, examines delinquency from a 
sociological perspective.  The book also evaluates the justice system's 
effectiveness in controlling juvenile delinquency, reviews recent 
legislation and court rulings on the rights of youthful offenders, examines 
the rights of adolescents in general, and assesses legal efforts to correct 
their antisocial behavior."

(769-792 p.)  
  "Envied for decades as havens from crime, the nation's suburbs are 
increasingly the setting for burglaries, rapes, car thefts and gunfights 
between youth gangs.  Many residents fear that crime is spilling out from 
the inner cities on highways and public transportation systems, but others 
argue that most suburban crime is home-grown.  While homeowners install 
burglar alarms and build walls around their subdivisions, social critics 
warn against widening racial and class divisions and the decline of 
America's sense of community.  As land-use planners rethink the design of 
suburban tracts and shopping malls, suburban residents are joining 
Neighborhood Watch anti-crime groups."

 The origins of delinquent events: an examination of offender accounts.  
Journal of research in crime and delinquency, v. 27, Aug. 1990: 267-294. 
  "Data from a nationally representative sample of adolescents are used to 
examine the explanations delinquents offer for engaging in 14 different 
offenses.  Property crimes are committed primarily for self-
gratification/pleasure and utilitarian need.  Violent crimes are committed 
primarily for retaliation/revenge.  Drug offenses are committed primarily 
because of social pressure, with self-gratification/pleasure also an important 
reason.  With isolated exceptions, these findings hold for less and more 
serious crimes and across a variety of subgroups."

  "Sociologists continue to be vexed by the pathology of urban violence: why 
is it so random, so fierce, so easily triggered?  One answer may be found in 
our Southern past."  The author sees a centuries-long Southern fixation with 
"honor" now perpetuated mostly by lower-class whites and lower-class Blacks, 
even in cities far removed from the South. 

 Biopsychosocial characteristics of children who later murder: a prospective 
study.  American journal of psychiatry, v. 142, Oct. 1985: 1161-1167. 
  "Document[s] the childhood neuropsychiatric and family characteristics of 
nine male subjects who were clinically evaluated as adolescents and were later 
arrested for murder.  Those subjects are compared with 24 incarcerated 
delinquents who did not go on to commit violent offenses.  The future 
murderers displayed a constellation of biopsychosical characteristics that 
included psychotic symptoms, major neurological impairment, a psychotic first-
degree relative, violent acts during childhood, and severe physical abuse.  
The authors relate this combination of factors to prediction of violence and 
discuss ethical issues that are involved in intervention to prevent violence."

 The company you keep: the effects of family and neighborhood on disadvantaged 
youths.  Cambridge, Mass., Harvard University Institute of Economic Research, 
1991.  28 p.  (Discussion paper no. 1555, May 1991) 
  "Residence in a neighborhood in which a large proportion of other youths are 
involved in crime is associated with a substantial increase in an individual's 
probability of being involved in crime.  Significant neighborhood peer effects 
are also apparent for drug and alcohol use, church attendance, and the

  "After describing how monoamine oxidase (MAO) appears to affect brain 
functioning, and how the activity of this enzyme, in turn, seems to be 
influenced by hormonal and genetic factors, studies are reviewed which link 
low MAO activity with high probabilities of criminality, psychopathy, 
childhood conduct disorders, as well as with sensation seeking, impulsivity, 
and drug abuse (especially alcoholism)."

 Crime and the employment of disadvantaged youths.  Cambridge, Mass., National 
Bureau of Economic Research, 1991.  40 p. 
  "This paper examines the magnitude of criminal activity among disadvantaged 
youths in the 1980s.  It shows that a large proportion of youths who dropped 
out of high school, particularly black school dropouts, developed criminal 
records in the decade; and that those who were incarcerated in 1980 or earlier 
were much less likely to hold jobs than other youths over the entire decade.  
The magnitudes of incarceration, probation, and parole among black dropouts, 
in particular, suggest that  crime has become an intrinsic part of the youth 
unemployment and poverty problem, rather than deviant behavior on the margin.  
Limited evidence on the returns to crime suggest that with the decline in 
earnings and employment for less educated young men, crime offers an 
increasingly attractive alternative."

 The psychological impact of violence in underserved communities.  Journal of 
health care for the poor and underserved, v. 6, Oct. 1995: 403-409. 
  "There is striking evidence that violence has a psychological impact on 
children and young adults in the United States, particularly those in 
underserved communities.  Homicide is the second leading cause of death of all 
persons between the ages of 15 and 24 years and is the leading cause among 
African American youth.  In 1990, more young African American men died from 
homicides than from all natural causes combined.  Research indicates a number 
of factors that can predispose children to a lifetime of violence and criminal 
activity, including poverty, substance abuse, poor parenting skills, placement 
outside the home, and improper peer interaction."

  "One research tradition in criminology has focused on the distribution of 
crime rates among social areas, and a second tradition has examined the 
distribution of crime among individuals.  Rarely are both traditions combined 
in a single study.  This study explores social area influences on the 
delinquent behavior of 3,729 adolescents who are clustered within diverse

assess the importance of three types of childhood victimization experiences--
physical abuse, spouse abuse, and emotional neglect--to the commission of 
violent crimes as a young adult.  The exploratory model is based on data 
collected on 100 male inmates incarcerated [in Minnesota] for crimes of 
violence and 65 nonincarcerated, nonviolent males matched on age, race, and 
neighborhood.  Findings from the analyses, estimated separately for Blacks and 
Whites, indicated that the childhood experiences associated with violent crime 
differed for Blacks and Whites and that the model fit the experiences of 
Blacks better than those of Whites."

  "A just-released study, funded by the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), followed 1,000 seventh- and eighth-grade Rochester, N.Y. students for four years.  It found that mistreated youngsters who grew up in violent families were twice as likely to commit brutal acts as were children from non- violent families.  The highest rates of youth violence occurred among youngsters exposed to all three types of family violence--spouse abuse, child mistreatment and general hostility.  Nearly 80 percent of these youngsters reported involvement in violent delinquency (six offenses that include assault, rape and robbery, but not murder) compared to 39 percent of those from nonviolent homes."

Violent boys were significantly more likely to not live with their fathers, to have unmarried parents, to have more siblings, and to have fathers who never show them affection.  Parents of violent boys were more likely than those of matched control students to use spanking for discipline and to admit that they rarely express affection for their sons."

Specifically, the study explores the correlates or explanatory factors of such offending among a sample of women arrested and/or incarcerated for violent street crimes in New York City.  The findings of this study suggest that an adequate understanding of female offending must consider the impact of neighborhood, peer, and addiction factors that affect both male and female participation in criminal violence.  In addition, it appears as though different configurations of these factors contribute to the initiation of violent offending depending on the age of onset."

  The Program on Human Development and Criminal Behavior (the "Program") has developed a sophisticated, interdisciplinary, and intellectually ambitious agenda for research on the causes and prevention of crime.  The agenda includes a series of overlapping longitudinal studies in a single site of seven cohorts of individuals ranging in age at the outset from birth to age 18; one or more full or partial replications of the study in other sites; a linked series of experimental assessments of promising interventions directed at different age groups; and a series of related methodological, statistical, and pilot studies.  This book summarizes the conclusions from the first two years of work on the program.

  "Two central themes emerge from the research.  The first is the juvenile justice system's sexual double standard, which views girls very much as commodities who need to have their sexuality controlled.  The second is the system's committment to parental authority, even when not in the girls' best interest.  Perhaps most troubling is the  finding that when young women continue to commit status-offense behavior, most notably running away, it is frequently because they are being sexually and physically abused in the home.  And yet, they are most often returned to the home, a situation that is clearly intolerable for them."

  "Highlights the police role and functions with interrelationships between community agencies, the courts and correctional agencies emphasized . . . .  In this edition, we have focused upon the issues of changes taking place in the juvenile justice system.  The substantial increases in juveniles responsible for crimes of violence has continued the transformation of the juvenile court toward a criminal court.  The past two decades have reversed the rehabilitation movement toward that of punishment for juvenile offenders.  The legislatures have responded with tougher laws.  Current research into chronic juvenile recidivism suggests that a multiple agency approach including family support coordinated by probation may be the only realistic way to save juvenile offenders from lives of crime.  New in this edition is fuller treatment of the role and functions of the juvenile court judge, a more detailed historical perspective of the juvenile court and community policing."

Deterrence is one of the major arguments underlying this growth in the use of legislative waiver.  This research evaluated the deterrent effect of the 1981 Idaho legislative waive statute.

 Viable options: intensive supervision programs for juvenile delinquents.  Crime & delinquency, v. 36, Apr. 1990: 238-256.  
  "The Wayne County Juvenile Court in Detroit, Michigan, recently developed and evaluated three in-home, intensive supervision programs as alternatives to commitment for adjudicated delinquents.  More than 500 youths were randomly assigned to either intensive supervision or a control group that was committed to the state for placement.  The evaluation found the in-home programs to be as effective as commitment for about one-third the cost.  Two years after random assignment, the experimental and control group cases showed few differences in recidivism, either in official charges or self-report.  The study suggests that in-home programs are a viable option for many youths who would otherwise be committed."

Based on survey data gathered from workers in both facilities in the fall of 1991, exploratory findings reveal significant differences between workers in the two facilities in punitive attitudes, but few differences in other attitudes."

As a result, between 1980 and 1990, commitments to state correctional facilities fell 73%.  The evidence suggests that case advocacy is an effective strategy for reducing commitments to juvenile correctional institutions."

  "This article presents the findings of a two-year assessment of the impact of the San Diego County Interagency Agreement upon delinquent behavior.  The goals of this system wide strategy are to reduce juvenile delinquency through consistent, early intervention and graduated sanctions, based on the nature of the arrest offense and prior offense history, and to hold youth accountable for their acts.  The findings suggest that a strategy such as the Interagency Agreement may be successful in reducing juvenile crime if implemented carefully over an extended time period.   Based upon the results of this evaluation, recommendations for other jurisdictions are offered."

Data were collected from hospitals that have adolescent care programs.  When these hospitals were given a hypothetical situation in which the parents' main problem with their child was the music he or she listened to, the clothes he or she wore, and the posters on his or her bedroom wall, 83% of the facilities believed the youth needed hospitalization.  These findings were placed within a labeling framework in order to understand the effect of these policies."

  "This article presents the results of a study that examined the 18-month recidivism of juvenile felony offenders who were placed into an intensive supervision program in lieu of commitment to an institution.  The study used a quasi-experimental design to compare the outcomes of intensive supervision program (ISP) participants with those of youth who were incarcerated and then released to parole, and with a group of felony offenders who were handled on regular probation.  Results show that, although not a panacea, intensive supervision clearly is an effective alternative to incarceration."

 Reintegrative police surveillance of juvenile offenders: forging an urban model.  Crime & delinquency, v. 40, Apr. 1994: 131-153. 
  "Neither community-based corrections nor community policing is designed to handle serious, repeat offenders who are returning to high-crime neighborhoods.  Police need to reexamine their roles to ensure that (a) policies of maintaining order and consequences of disorder are not ambiguous or misleading to youths and (b) order maintenance and law enforcement practices do not interfere with police ability to protect youths as victims of crime.

  "Designed to teach illiterate youth to read and write, these programs offer a nontraditional, motivational approach that provides students with immediate positive feedback and then encourages them to strive for success.  The approach--not customarily found in schools--is noteworthy because frequently a juvenile offender's sense of inadequacy has been reinforced by the experience of academic failure."

 Deterrence and juvenile crime: results from a national policy experiment.  New York, Springer-Verlag, 1990.  127 p. HV9104.S323 1990
  "The purpose of this book is to examine the perceptual mechanisms that link delinquency policy to changes in recidivism, and to seek exlanations for why juveniles who have been exposed to numerous programs designed to reduce delinquency continue or discontinue their criminal activity.  Perceptions of certainty and severity of punishment will be examined, along with the juvenile's sense of citizenship, perceptions of fairness, and feelings of remorse. . . .  The research emerges from a major national policy experiment funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and the National Institute of Juvenile Justice.  Data for the study are from six juvenile courts in which youth were randomly assigned into restitution, incarceration, or probation programs."

 Effectiveness of culturally specific community treatment for African American juvenile felons.  Crime & delinquency, v. 40, Oct. 1994: 589-598. 
  "In response to seemingly high recidivism rates among male African American juvenile felons in Cincinnati, a community program was created specifically for these youths.  The Community Corrections Partnership (CCP) Program focuses on the cultural regrounding of African American boys to improve their self-esteem and help them to develop a sense of community. . . .  This article presents results from a study of rearrests among juveniles who have completed the program and a comparison group of youths who underwent probation.  The findings revealed that CCP did no better than regular probation for preventing recidivism among these juveniles."

  Includes article by Robert C. Trojanowicz, Building support for community policing.  Both articles conclude that "police leaders must articulate effective approaches to the problem of crime and violence.  They must challenge educators, public health professionals, voluntary and social service agencies, corporate leaders, and the media to help combat what is going down on the streets of their cities, towns, or counties.  And, they should set the agenda when it comes to legislation, whether it pertains to laws regarding guns, drugs, or the exposure of children to violence on television."

  "The Action Plan describes how communities can generate solutions and how individuals and groups can prevent or reduce violence in their own block, public housing unit, or neighborhood.  Cooperative partnerships among justice, health, child welfare, education, and social service systems can lay the foundation for measurable successes.  Working together, individuals, groups, and communities can make real and sustained changes.  The Action Plan also provides important information about Federal training, technical assistance, grants, research, evaluation, and other resources that support these efforts."

  "The meta-analysis findings show that alternative education programs have a small overall effect on school performance, attitudes toward school, and self-esteem but no effect on delinquency.  Furthermore, alternative education programs that target a specific population of at-risk delinquents or low school achievers produce larger effects than programs with open admissions."

  "Adolescents who are chronically exposed to violence and poverty respond with rage, distrust, and hopelessness.  Successful programs for these youth include nine essential elements: street outreach and referral; needs and interest assessments; provisions for supportive, personal relationships with adults; availability of role models; peer group discussions; family interventions; neighborhood projects; education and job preparedness training; and program objectives.  Neighborhood youth centers should engage youth in program planning and program operation."

  "Examines the policy implications of the long-standing debate in the social sciences over the relative contributions of socioeconomic inequality versus cultural differences as causes of violence.  While the weight of the scholarly evidence favors neither of these explanations, existing and proposed policies often reflect a preference for the importance of culture. This paper discusses the limitations of that choice and advocates alternative policies that consider the importance of both sets of etiological factors."

  "Nearly one million adolescents between the ages of twelve and nineteen are victims of violent crimes each year, and this has been true at least since 1985.  The victimization of adolescents, particularly twelve- to fifteen-year-olds, is growing.  Teenagers are twice as likely to be assaulted as persons aged twenty and older.  The rate and intensity of violence involving children and youths, moreover, has escalated  dramatically, and much of it is accounted for by adolescents attacking others in their age group.  Adolescent homicide rates have reached the highest levels in history."

  "To rid poor urban neighborhoods of their criminal element, public officials at all levels must encourage the creation of new relationships between low-income resident organizations and local police forces.  Central to this strategy is to give residents the confidence that they can take steps themselves to reduce crime.  In this way, America may one day have a real chance of declaring victory in a war on urban poverty."

  "Report for Recommendation 92-8" 
  Examines the grant program established under the 1974 Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act "wherein the substantive conditions on funding, along with the devices utilized to accommodate difficulties of compliance with those conditions, create what appears to be a hybrid institution: a federal grant-making agency which in many respects operates in the mode of a traditional regulatory agency.  Moreover, at least among categorical formula grant programs designed to provide financial assistance to state and local governments for the delivery of social services, it is unique in its administrative characteristics."

 Family and religious influences on adolescent substance abuse.  Youth and society, v. 24, June 1993: 443-465. 
  "There were three major findings in this study.  First, level of peer drug use is strongly associated with substance abuse.  Second, parental monitoring and family drug use do not have direct impacts on adolescent drug use but have moderately strong associations with peer drug use.  Third, after controlling for parental monitoring and family drug use, family cohesion (as perceived by either the adolescent or the parent) and religious importance are not associated with peer drug use, substance abuse, or current use of marijuana and cocaine."

  "This report concludes a two-phase assignment, which the Joint Economic Committee asked the Regional Studies Center at Baylor University to carry out, assessing the costs to society of substance abuse--especially cocaine and crack addiction--and dropping out of school . . . .  The report is organized around three central questions.  What is the impact of cocaine and crack abuse in terms of crime, present and prospective public spending, and lost productivity?  What policies have successfully moved addicts away from crack? And what policies have successfully reduced the high school dropout rate?" 

 Causes of drug use: what do college students think?  Criminal justice and behavior, v. 19, Dec. 1992: 363-371. 
  "Subjects were asked in a free-response format to nominate causes of drug use.  The 10 most frequently cited causes were used as labels on a matrix, and subjects were asked to determine whether there was a cause-and-effect link between each pair of nominated causes.  Individual matrices were combined, and the composite matrix was subjected to network analysis.  The results indicate that subjects view personal problems (stress and depression) and peer-related societal acceptance as important causal factors in drug use."

  "This study sought to describe patterns of initiation, persistence, and cessation in drug use in individuals from their late 20s to their mid-30s, within a broad perspective  that spans 19 years from adolescence to adulthood.  A fourth wave of personal interviews was conducted at ages 34-35 with a cohort of men and women (n=1160) representative of adolescents formerly enrolled in New York State public secondary high schools.  A school survey was administered at ages 15-16, and personal interviews with participants and school absentees were conducted at ages 24-25 and 28-29.  Retrospective continuous histories of 12 drug classes were obtained at each follow-up."

  "The age-old activity of drinking, once considered a rite of passage on college campuses, has fallen under increased scrutiny.  Some researchers report that alcohol consumption has reached `epidemic' proportions and are calling for wide-ranging changes on campus.  More moderate voices hope to teach students to drink responsibly."

  "A surprisingly large number of adolescents in the United States experiment with intoxicating inhalants.  These inhalants include a wide range of household products such as glue, spray paint, lighter fluid, and propellent gases used in aerosols.  In spite of the fact that inhalants result in an untold number of deaths every year, inhalant abuse has been relegated to the status of a poor stepchild in the war on drugs.  This Research Report is based on recent studies on the use of inhalants among adolescents in the United States."

 Dying to tell: the hidden meaning of adolescent substance abuse.  Abilene, Tex., ACU Press, 1992.  179 p. HV5824.Y68L49 1992 
  "Our research and counseling with teens convince us that substance abuse always articulates a deeper pain or trauma in the teen's life, and this pain or trauma inevitably has a spiritual dimension to it.  For us, substance abuse only makes sense when interpreted within a spiritual context.  And treatment is much more likely to succeed when it takes into account those underlying spiritual conditions."

 Back to the `70s: the MTV generation inhales.  Washington, Family Research Council, 1995.  11 p.  (Insight IS95B3DR) 
  "The sex-drug-rock counterculture of the 1960s is not dead.  It was temporarily stalled in the 1980s when the Reagan administration, activists and citizen groups mobilized against it.  But youth drug use has not disappeared.  And glamorization of drug use in the [music and entertainment] industry appears to be on the rise.  Consider the evidence."

  "This study analyzes survey data collected from over 400 junior high school students in Grades 7 and 8 in an attempt to determine the relationships between family drug use factors; peer drug use factors; school problems; psychosocial concerns; alcohol, marijuana, and other drug use; and abstinence.  Socialization theory is used as the theoretical framework, factor analysis is used to create indexes, and analysis of variance and regression procedures are used for analysis.  Based on the findings, implications for policy, prevention, and treatment programs are discussed."  

 Racial/ethnic differences in smoking, drinking, and illicit drug use among American high school seniors.  American journal of public health, v. 81, Mar. 1991: 372-377. 

  "This study, other school-based studies, and general population surveys all show relatively low levels of drug use by most non-White youth, especially Black Americans and Asian Americans.  Multivariate analyses indicate that such subgroup differences in high school seniors' drug use are not primarily attributable to family composition, parents' education, region, or urban-rural distinctions."

  Report "seeks to answer two main questions: First, what is the current status of, and what are recent trends in, teen drug use, pregnancy, and dropping out of school?  Second, what has research learned since 1987 about the relationship between teen drug use and either pregnancy or dropping out?  The basic data GAO reviewed showed little evidence that trends in the three youth problems are increasing.  Indeed, these problems today may not be dramatically different from those seen in recent years."

  "In this study we examined the relation of anabolic-steroid use to the use of other drugs, including cocaine, marijuana, alcohol, cigarettes, and smokeless tobacco.  In  addition, we sought to determine the degree to which young adolescents reported the use of injectable drugs and the percentage that reported sharing needles."

  "Dropouts and subjects matched for similarly poor academic records have higher rates of drug use and are more likely to be both the victims and perpetrators of violence.  The image is one of youths with multiple problems, which exacerbate each other.  The results indicate that dropouts may have many more problems in life than those that are caused by failure to complete high school.  The results suggest that prevention or treatment programs may not be effective if they try to deal only with a single facet of the dropouts' lives."

 A recent decline in cocaine use among youthful arrestees in Manhattan, 1987 through 1993.  American journal of public health, v. 84, Aug. 1994:  1250-1254. 
  "Results.  All analyses suggest that the dramatic decline in detected cocaine use among arrestees--from 69% in 1987 to 17% in 1993--was a cohort effect.  Detected cocaine use, which was highest (78%) among arrestees reaching 18 in 1986 at the  height of the crack epidemic in New York City, subsequently declined to a low of 10% among arrestees reaching 18 in 1993.   These findings suggest that the epidemic in use of cocaine and crack entered a decline in the late 1980s.  However, widespread use of these drugs will probably continue to prevail as an aging population with established habits persists in its use."

  "The researchers conducted on-street interviews of some 600 active serious delinquents in 20 neighborhoods within the Miami/Dade County (Florida) metropolitan area. . . .  The major focus of the study was on the relationship between criminal behavior and drug involvement.  The findings are both significant and alarming, as all of the youth interviewed had extensive histories of multiple drug use, with identifiable patterns of onset and progression.  The availability and use of crack cocaine were particularly widespread, contributing to early and violent criminal activities."

Using a 1992 amendment to the Canadian criminal code as a model, [the author] proposes a new legal standard for consent in sexual assault cases."

  "F-1077, January 1995." 
  "Americans widely share the belief that drugs are a destructive force that generate other problems, with violence prominent among them.  In seeking ways to reduce youth violence, one must consider the possible roles of alcohol and drug use.  I focus on the age span of 12 through 18, the time that most American youth spend in junior or senior high school.  Violence and substance use most often begin during this period."

 Juvenile court drug and alcohol cases: 1985-1988.  Bureau of Justice Statistics bulletin, Dec. 1991: whole issue (11 p.) 
  "NCJ 132073" 
  "From 1985 through 1988, juvenile courts saw an increase in both drug and alcohol cases.  During those years, in the jurisdictions studied, the drug case rate increased nearly 12 percent, while the alcohol case rate increased by 8 percent.  By 1988, drug cases were more likely to result in residential placement, and were less likely to be dismissed outright.  While the severity with which drug cases were handled increased, not much changed in the way alcohol cases were processed."

It is about what happened in 1989 as a new era of narcotics violence stalked and clobbered Washington, D.C. and urban areas like it across the country.  It is about the District government's concerted antidrug counterattack that year, about the emergency expansion of police patrols and the attempts to impose nightly curfews and the large scale drug arrests made possible with help from special federal paramilitary squads backed up by Pentagon intelligence experts."

 Underage drinking: is the government using the right tactics in its crackdown?  CQ researcher, v. 2, Mar. 13, 1992: 217-240.   
  "Illegal alcohol use is easing off at schools and colleges, but drips of progress toward temperance may not be enough.  Concerned federal officials blame underage drinking for disturbing levels of campus violence and emotional problems, as well as a large proportion of traffic deaths.  Just two months ago, the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy addressed alcohol for the first time in its strategy to combat illegal drugs.  The issue is also being confronted by the alcoholic beverage industry, which is spending unprecedented sums on advertising to remind Americans that they must be 21 to drink.  Though most everyone agrees on a need for multiple solutions--including beefed-up law enforcement, education campaigns and improved family communication--there is little consensus on how tough is too tough."

 Preventing teen drug use: do school programs push the wrong people?  CQ researcher, v. 5, July 28, 1995: whole issue (657-680 p.)   
  "Drug use is once again on the rise among America's youth.  Although teens who use drugs are still in the minority, some experts say that recent increases in the popularity of drugs, though modest, may indicate the beginnings of a new drug epidemic.  They point to the pot culture's comeback, as reflected in music and clothing, and to surveys showing teenagers' weakening disapproval of drugs.  Federal drug officials say stronger anti-drug messages are needed, but studies indicate that most school drug prevention programs are untested or ineffective.  Some researchers say the predominant message--that students should resist peer pressure to try drugs--may have little impact in a society where drug experimentation is a normal but not necessarily fatal part of adolescence."

To assess the impact, these 12 States were paired for comparison with 12 nearby States matched for legal drinking age and timing of changes in that law."

 Changing the legal minimum drinking age: results of a longitudinal study.  Journal of studies on alcohol, v. 53, Nov. 1992: 568-575. 
  "The most prevalent observation from analysis of data collected over the 10 sampling periods is that drinking patterns and behaviors exhibited by the students in this research remained roughly constant over time.  Only minor changes in drinking patterns were observed, and there were no significant differences in total quantity and frequency of consumption.  Some accommodations in drinking locations were apparent, but these seemed to balance out; that is, decreased drinking in one area (e.g., restaurants) was balanced by increased drinking in another (e.g., residence halls).  This would seem to indicate that legislation may not have an impact on total drinking behavior to any great extent.  After a law is adopted, enforcement agencies frequently find practical difficulties in interpreting or enforcing the law.  In addition, businesses and consumers find `loopholes' to allow them to continue behaviors that are targeted by the law."

  "The Baltimore, MD, Police Department realized that youth gangs are distinct in their structure, objective, and methods of operations from the typical drug organization and must be dealt with accordingly.  This article demonstrates that the evolution of gangs--coupled with the dramatic increase of the drug problem--has made many standard investigative approaches ineffective."

  "Drive by shootings and assaults by gangs now routinely make headlines in dozens of American cities.  But today's gangs differ from the classic switchblade-toting packs of the 1950s.  Many are tightly organized, mobile criminal units that carry semiautomatic weapons and run sophisticated drug-trafficking operations.  Police, government officials, community leaders and academics can't agree on a solution to the gang problem.  Does it lie in tougher police tactics, more effective social work or a combined approach that involves the whole community?"

  "Ethnographic studies of gangs have provided a richness and depth of description that is indispensable to the study of gangs, but they have typically focused on a single gang or ethnic group.  Our goal in the present volume is different but complementary: to provide breadth and generality that may help to put separate studies of gangs in particular times and locations within an appropriate historical, comparative, and theoretical context."

  "A National Institute of Justice (NIJ)-sponsored survey of metropolitan police departments in the 79 largest U.S. cities showed that in spring 1992 all but 7 were troubled by gangs, as were all but 5 departments in 43 smaller cities . . . .  The NIJ-sponsored survey findings detailed in this Research in Brief represent a first step toward the development of national-level data on gangs, their members, and their criminal activities.  Results of the NIJ Gang Survey suggest some fruitful preliminary actions jurisdictions can take to improve the information on gangs available to policymakers and officials."

In both sets of cross-sectional data, the fitting of linear structural models shows gang involvement to be an effective post hoc estimator of delinquency for these youth, whereas delinquency is not an effective estimator of gang involvement."

This article reviews recent gang studies that shed light on the above assertions and increase our knowledge of gangs.

  Charges that the newly organized Resistance Records "is much more than a racist record label for a growing stable of power rock bands and publisher of a slick Skinzine called Resistance.  Behind the music and propaganda is a hardcore group of Skins and ex-Skins who envision a national organization that will unite violent young white supremacists under one banner.

Is youth gang crime more of an issue for people in their own neighborhoods or other places? And in particular, we ask, what kinds of factors shape these perceptions? Studies of perceptions about crime, especially in relation to youth gangs which have come to symbolize the essence of the crime problem in the United States, are important because or their potential impact on types of control policies and the quality of life in a given area."

  With no reason to live and no fear of dying, street-wise gangs are turning cities into battlegrounds.  In fact, if a kid makes it to adulthood, he is considered a survivor.  Many, caught up in a web of drugs, gangs, and violence, end up on the streets, in jail, or even in the morgue. . . .

We must reverse their sense of helplessness.  The first step is to invest them with more authority to run their own lives, their communities, even their schools.  The aim is to help them stop being instruments of their own death and to choose a revolutionary service to life."

Several court decisions have addressed issues concerning university liability to student victims of campus crime and have used the doctrine of foreseeability as the standard for establishing liability.  Congress responded by passing the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990, which mandates postsecondary schools to publicly report certain crime statistics and security policies.  Several state legislatures have also enacted reporting legislation.  Further, administrators have begun to implement a variety of educational crime prevention and safety programs, as well as security procedures, to reduce crime, risk and fear."

  "Big cities, small towns: more and more guns in younger and younger hands . . . .  The root causes of this bizarre and lethal trend include all the usual demons of American society--the easy availability of guns, the rise of drug-related crime, parental irresponsibility and so on.  As always, educators contend that public schools merely mirror the broader trends in society--and if guns, drugs and violent crime are on the increase, they say, schools will be affected, too."

Sanday, Peggy Reeves.
 Fraternity gang rape: sex, brotherhood, and privilege on campus.  New York, New York University Press, 1990.  203 p.   
  University of Pennsylvania anthropologist presents a case study of a 1983 incident involving one of her students.  "The book explores what happened through interviews with the victim, the participants, onlookers, and university administrators.  Professor Sanday reconstructs the daily life in the fraternity, showing the role played by pornography, male bonding, degrading jokes, and ritual dances, in shaping the fraternity's attitude toward women and toward sexuality . . . .  Gang rape occurs widely on our college campuses.  The evidence suggests a common pattern . . . . Incidents of this sort are rarely prosecuted or even labeled rape, part of an institutional attitude that, according to Professor Sanday and others, privileges men and sanctions sexual power."

  "Students in two inner-city junior high schools [in the District of Columbia] completed anonymous questionnaires.  Logistic regression models were fit for having ever carried a weapon for protection or use in a fight and were stratified by sex and  weapon type . . . .  Knife carrying was associated with aggressiveness but did not appear to be related to serious delinquency.  Gun carrying within this nonrandom sample appeared to be a component of highly aggressive delinquency rather than a purely defensive behavior."

  "Colleges are getting tougher with male students who press unwanted sex on women.  The date rape movement, started by victims protesting insensitive treatment by campus police and administrators, has become institutionalized.  The federal government now requires virtually every college to offer programs aimed at stopping sexual assaults.  Rape-prevention educators argue that the heightened awareness of rape will help place sexual relations between men and women on an equal footing, reducing sexual exploitation by men.  Critics say the movement is creating needless hysteria on campus, encouraging women to cry rape over miscommunication and regretted sex." 

 Violence in schools: can anything be done to curb the growing violence?  CQ researcher, v. 2, Sept. 11, 1992: whole issue (p. 785-808).   
  "While some experts blame a breakdown in school discipline, others point to drugs and gangs.  And some say schools merely reflect an increasingly violent society, whose attitudes are passed on through television and movies to children who lack the traditional counterweights of parental guidance, community kinship or religion.  As violence mounts, many teachers and criminologists argue for a crackdown on hard-core troublemakers through toughened expulsion policies.  But other educators believe that schools must take on the basic task of teaching students to resolve conflicts peacefully--a lesson that many children no longer seem to receive at home."

The first option is what Ithiel de Sola Pool terms a `policy of freedom,' one that places the emphasis on the rights of individual over the rights of the state.  The second option is what could be termed a policy of `justified control,' one that emphasizes the values of community and stability over that of individual liberty, viewing freedom of expression as part of a broader constellation of interests that must be balanced in response to the needs of society as a whole."

 TV violence: more objectionable in entertainment than in newscasts.  Washington, Times Mirror Center for the People & the Press, 1993.  53 p.  
  "For release: Wednesday, March 25, 1993, A.M." 
  "Many more Americans express concern about the amount of violence on entertainment television programs than about the increasingly violent content of broadcast news.  TV news, while seen as containing more graphic violence than in the past, is also seen as reflecting the reality of a violent society.  Further, a large sector of the public appears desensitized to violent video in newscasts because of the graphically brutal movies and entertainment television programs it watches.  These are the principal findings of a recent Times Mirror nationwide survey . . . of 1,516 Americans conducted February 20-23."

                          BOOKS AND MONOGRAPHS

 Many libraries around the country, particularly large academic and research libraries, use Library of Congress subject headings in their catalogs.  To learn how books on juvenile crime and related topics are categorized in these libraries, consult the four-volume guide, Library of Congress Subject Headings.  It is usually kept near the card catalog or near the terminals for an automated catalog.  The most relevant LC subject headings for research on juvenile crime and related topics are listed below:

Child prostitution
Children and violence
Children--Alcohol use
Children--Drug use
Children--Substance use
Drug abuse and crime
Drug abuse--Prevention
Juvenile corrections
Juvenile courts
Juvenile delinquency
Juvenile delinquency--Prevention
Juvenile delinquents
Juvenile delinquents--Rehabilitation
Juvenile detention
Juvenile detention homes
Juvenile homicide
Juvenile justice, Administration of
Juvenile parole
Juvenile probation
Narcotics and crime
Police services for juveniles
School violence
Shock incarceration
Status offenders
Teenage sex offenders
Teenagers--Alcohol use
Teenagers--Drug use
Teenagers--Substance use
Violence in mass media
Violence in motion pictures
Violence in television
Youth--Alcohol use
Youth--Drug use
Youth--Substance use

These terms may also be used in searching the Library of Congress catalogs on the Internet. Consult the section on Internet Resources, below.

 In many school and public libraries, books are arranged by the Dewey Decimal classification system.  In these libraries, books are usually assigned subject headings from the Sears List of Subject Headings, also generally found near the card catalog.  

 If you have trouble locating books that are listed here or in other bibliographic sources, ask your librarian about Books in Print and about interlibrary loan.  Books in Print will be useful in identifying the addresses of publishers for the purchase of materials, and in identifying additional and recently published books.  Look particularly under the term juvenile delinquency.  Interlibrary loan may make it possible for your library to borrow materials from other libraries that you have identified, but that your library does not have available. 



 Most libraries carry a selection of encyclopedias; these can be an excellent starting point in gathering basic background information on a topic.  Subject headings vary from one publication to another; begin by checking the index volume(s) for basic keywords like juvenile deinquency, gangs, drug abuse, and related subjects.  Encyclopedia articles often have bibliographies appended, which can be used to locate additional information on the topic.  


 This general purpose directory provides access to more than 12,000 agencies and organizations in the U.S.  


 This publication serves as a guide to the many catalogs, encyclopedias, checklists, and other compilations of information that exist in print.  Any publication which includes addresses of individuals or organizations is eligible for inclusion in this resource.  It lists a wide range of publications, including lists of cultural institutions, directories of professional organizations and societies, and membership lists of a variety of special interest groups.  This resource can be used to locate more specialized directories of organizations and individuals involved in the field of juvenile delinquency.  Entries are grouped by subject categories, and the publication includes a title and a subject index.


 Edited and compiled by R. R. Bowker, this directory lists public, academic, government and special libraries in the United States, and regions administered by it, and in Canada.  Arranged geographically, the entries are alphabetized by state, region, or province; then by city; and finally by the institution or library name.  Entries include the name and address of the library, names of key personnel and information on the library's  holdings.  In addition, most entries provide information on some or all of these additional areas: Income; Expenditures, including salaries; Subject interests; Special collections; Automation and publication.

                           JOURNAL ARTICLES

 Citations to journal articles and other materials about juvenile delinquency and related topics can be found in a number of printed indexes, online bibliographic databases, and CD-ROM products.  The materials covered by selected printed indexes are briefly described here, along with recommended search terms for each.  Printed indexes include lists of periodicals indexed and the abbreviations referring to these publications.  Introductory sections of these reference tools are helpful in using these indexes.

 Online bibliographic databases are useful for locating citations to journal articles and other materials quickly by using a computer terminal to search a machine readable file.  The researcher may combine search terms in ways that are impossible in a printed index or library catalog, and may also simultaneously search material covering several years that would be contained in separate printed indexes.  Many of the printed indexes described in this guide are also available as online databases.  

 Brief descriptions of some major online services providing access to bibliographic databases are provided.  A reference librarian can advise you on the availability of computerized search services in your area; there is often a fee for the use of these services.

 Many libraries now have CD-ROM products of printed indexes available for researchers.  This technology enables a user to search materials available in printed and online indexes using a personal computer.  Check with a reference librarian to determine if these products are available in your area.

                            INTERNET RESOURCES


 The Library of Congress provides Internet access to its campus-wide information system, LC MARVEL (Machine-Assisted Realization of the Virtual Electronic Library), based on Gopher software from the University of Minnesota.  LC MARVEL provides information by and about the Library as well as links to a vast and diverse collection of Internet resources worldwide, all arranged in an easy-to-navigate hierarchical menu structure.  Although most information on LC MARVEL is available in plain text (ASCII format), LC MARVEL also offers Library of Congress image files (e.g., gif and jpeg formats) and a small number of files in special formats (e.g., WordPerfect).

 LC MARVEL resources provided directly by the ibrary include image and text files from the Library's exhibits; services and information for visitors and researchers, including loan and photoduplication policies; background on Library collections and reading rooms; subject-specific bibliographies and guides; services for the blind and physically handicapped; information on LC publications and products; coverage of literacy programs; documents on cataloging (including the CIP, ISSN, and ISBN programs), acquisitions, standards, and preservation; copyright information, including circulars, form letters and regulations; employment opportunities; backgrounders on health, safety, and finance.  A link to the Library of Congress Information System (LOCIS) is also provided under MARVEL.  The preferred access to LC MARVEL is through a local gopher client or via another gopher server pointing to marvel.loc.gov, port 70.


 The Web is an Internet-based online information delivery tool which makes use of hypertext and hypermedia documents.  Hypertex/media refers to specialy coded electronic documents that can link to other Internet resources, which can be text, images, audio, video, software, or even other databases.  In order to access WWW over the Internet, a "browser" client appropriate to your computing platform is used.  There are WWW browsers for DOS, Windows, OS/2, Macintosh, and UNIX platforms as well as many others.  Some browsers allow for the dispay of grahics and other multimedia effects (such as audio or full-motion video), while otheres do not.  Additional hardware or software may be required for the display or playing of many of the special-format files available on the WWW.  The current Library of Congress WWW offerings can be accessed via a "homepage" or initial selection screen.  Connections to WWW resources are made by specifying a uniform Resource Locator or URL through your client software.  The URL for LC Web is: http://www.loc.gov.
