In our age of technology and "information explosion," statistics have become inevitable and necessary. Dull reading though they may be, they provide a factual background for understanding, decision making, and action. In this, his fifth volume on juvenile delinquency, Professor Lunden presents a wealth of information (over 200 tables, graphs, and charts) regarding the quantity, quality, and trends of youth crime. The variety and completeness of data (even to the hourly cycle of offenses), combined with an objective and thorough documentation, results in a well-organized compact reference book, inviting confidence in its validity.
