About the Author:

Travis Hirschi is professor emeritus of sociology at the University of Arizona. He is past president of the American Society of Criminology and winner of its Edwin H. Sutherland Award. His previous works, Delinquency Research and Generality of Deviance, were also issued by Transaction.

Review:

"Travis Hirschi's Causes of Delinquency is not merely a turning point in deviance research. It is a book about adolescents, about Americans, a book, dare I say it, about America. It should be read then reread by those who, as they say, care about our people, and especially those whose private worlds of genuine concern often seem to by-pass an implacable reality."

—Thomas J. Cottle, Harvard Educational Review

"The hallmark of the study is its systematic focus on important theoretical issues, using the most advanced survey methods and analytical techniques. The consistency of finds is remarkable. The presentation is lively, unencumbered by obscure language or logic, brilliantly argued. It is a work of major consequence."

—James F. Short, Jr., Washington State University

"This is a highly significant piece of research which provides a serious challenge to the popular wisdom in criminology regarding delinquency."

The Journal of Criminal Law, Criminology and Police Science
