There is no question that adolescent violence and related risk behaviors are a serious problem in the U.S. today. Over the past several decades, there has been a concerted effort to identify factors that pose a risk for or serve as protection against delinquency and violence using large sample and longitudinal studies of youth. Together, the articles in this special issue belie the simplistic “whiz kid” stereotypes. “These articles,” says Umemoto, “contribute to the critical conversation on the risks, challenges, and opportunities facing AAPI youth.”
