Investigates inter-relationships among offending by three generations of relatives and the concentration of offending in families. Also investigates how far criminal relatives predict a boy's delinquency. Results indicate that offenders were highly concentrated in families, with the most important relative being the father. Possible links in the causal chain between arrested fathers and delinquent boys are discussed. (Author)
