Delinquency of Chinese-Canadian Youth: A Test of Opportunity, Control, and Intergeneration Conflict Theories.
Wong, Siu Kwong
Youth & Society, v29 n1 p112-33 Sep 1997
Examined the relationship between acculturation and delinquency in 315 adolescents and youth of Chinese descent in Winnipeg (Manitoba, Canada). Results show that adherence to Chinese culture reduces the likelihood of delinquency, an effect not explained by Chinese cultural norms and traditions and one that is not congruent with opportunity and control theories.
