Synopsis: Perez McCluskey explores the application of traditional strain theory across multiple ethnic groups. Using data from the Denver Youth Survey and the Rochester Youth Development Study she tests strain theory across two separate Latino groups and their white and African American counterparts. For the most part, strain theory is supported when males are examined collectively. However, when ethnic groups are examined individually, differences emerge. Strain theory does not explain Latino delinquency as well as it does that of other groups. One notable difference is the influence of delinquent friends: Latino attitudes and delinquent behavior are least affected by peers.
About the Author: Cynthia Perez McClusky is Assistant Professor in the School of Criminal Justice and Faculty Research Associate at the Julian Samora Research Institute, Michigan State University. She earned her Ph.D. in 1999 from the University of Albany, State University of New York.
