Juvenile Delinquency among African Americans.
Joseph, Janice
Journal of Black Studies, v25 n4 p475-91 Mar 1995
Compared the involvement of black males and females in delinquency and examined the explanatory value of variables drawn from three traditional theories of delinquency (social control, structural strain, and differential association) for understanding delinquency among blacks. Results show that only two variables, attachment to school and delinquent companions, were successful in explaining delinquent behavior in this group. (GR)
