Heredity and Sociological Theories of Delinquency: A Reconsideration.
Rowe, David C.; Osgood, D. Wayne
American Sociological Review, v49 n4 p526-40 Aug 1984
To demonstrate the value of behavioral genetic analysis for developing social theory, the origins of delinquent behavior were studied in 265 pairs of twins. Results show that causal sequences leading to delinquency are traceable to individual differences in genes. These findings, however, do not make sociological research irrelevant. (KH)
