Myths of Middle-Class Delinquency: A Test of the Generalizability of Social Control Theory
Linden, Rick
Youth and Society, 9, 4, 407-32, Jun 78
This paper evaluates and tests several theories of middle class delinquency. Arguments that middle-class boys are less delinquent and commit different kinds of delinquent acts than boys from other classes are not supported by the data. A modified version of social control theory is tested. (Author/AM)
