9780521891295: Gangs and Delinquency in Developmental Perspective (Cambridge Studies in Criminology)

To reveal how membership in adolescent street gangs influences human development, the authors examine the origins of gang membership and the social and psychological factors that lead to joining. After demonstrating that gang members are responsible for the major share of serious and violent delinquency, they indicate how membership facilitates delinquent behavior and other developmental problems such as teen pregnancy and school dropout.

Book Description:

This book examines how membership in adolescent street gangs influences human development. The authors first examine the origins of gang membership and the social and psychological factors that lead some youth to join a gang. They then show that gang members are responsible for the lion's share of serious and violent delinquency and that it is gang membership itself that facilitates these behaviors. Finally, they demonstrate that gang membership increases the chances of dropping out of school, becoming a teen parent, and other developmental problems.

Review:

"This book makes a major contribution...[and] this study succeeds very well in doing what it set out to do." The Prevention Researcher

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Gang membership has long been understood to have a disruptive influence on adolescent development and to contribute disproportionately to the rate of delinquent crime. The nature of the impact, and the long-term effects on individuals, have not been well understood. This book uses longitudinal data to examine the developmental consequences of gang membership, and its longer term influence on the life course. This longitudinal approach is made possible by data from a study of antisocial behavior, The Rochester Youth Development Study, which followed one thousand adolescents through their early adult years. The subjects include delinquents who were gang members and others who were not, allowing the authors to compare motives, patterns of behavior, and recurring problems with caregivers and the law, education, peer relations, and career paths. The findings indicate that multiple developmental deficits lead to gang membership and that membership leads to an increase in delinquency. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521891295
