Abstract:

"This book is a comparative study of delinquency and the government measures devised to counter it in Singapore and Hong Kong, the "two little dragons" in Asia. It looks at the causes of youth crime and examines the strategies for effective handling of the problem. This cross-cultural analysis of the two little dragons' social backgrounds, delinquency rates, and government programmes addressing the issue is a result of the authors' strong enthusiasm for the subject and their intense work in compiling and analysing the data for their respective society." "The book also will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers with its insightful case studies of youths who descend into delinquency and crime, balanced by analyses of theories and statistical data." "This edition of the book contains updates to information on the current situation of delinquency in both countries."--BOOK JACKET.
