Defiance and Despair: Subcultural and Structural Linkages between Delinquency and Despair in the Life Course.
Hagan, John
Social Forces, v76 n1 p119-34 Sep 1997
A 19-year multiwave panel study (1976-95) in suburban Toronto (Ontario), tracking adolescents into their mid-30s, found a "sleeper effect" of adolescent rebellion. Delinquent youth dropped out of school; showed no significant signs of distress in early adulthood; but were frequently unemployed by midlife, with accompanying feelings of hopelessness and despair. Contains 28 references. (Author/SV)
